Junk rig sail on Socotra island

The lack of tourists gave us a lot of free time. This allowed us to make a small sailing trimaran from the local plastic boat huri. In fact, it is a plastic analog of the classical Socotran boat, hollowed from piece of wood.

The length of the boat - 5.5 meters. We used improvised materials found on Socotra.
