So, towards the end of the project, we went to look for one. Not far from this shore, just across the Mandovi river in Verem, we found a workshop. They make boats, for a price of course. For now, we just wanted to test the waters (get our feet wet), so we hung around a little. Revisiting every other week to watch them layer the fibreglass sheets in the moulds and glue them together. Then, they waited for it to dry and harden. We have gathered that strength takes time to build.
And finally, one day when the hull of the boat is hard as a rock, they open the mould to release the boat into its first and forever float.
