  Building our own wooden boat for fishing
Fishing is a hobby to many person but fishing at the beach or on the rock or the seafront can be very slow if their is no bite. I used to fish on a rock near a seasides with a groups of friends when we are very young and it was a very interesting outing if we had regular catch but at times we only return home with a few fish or none at all on one occasion.

With a friend who house is situated along the beach and we a few friends who learn how to build small wooden boat, we decided to come with some money to build our own fishing boat. We brought all the teak wood and started building our wooden boat. After a month our boats was ready for sails with a sitting of eight person. Our wooden boat was equipped with first aid kids and safety items and runs by motors.

Now when ever we decided to go fishing we will sail our wooden boat to where there is plenty of fish to catch. It is very fun, we joke and enjoy food and drinks that we bring with us. When the sun is about to set, we will sail home and we also proud to show to our family and friends about our big and good catch.
