Photographer's Note

The name Pirogue are given to these wooden boats which are as in many parts of the world a flklore of the country.They are all the same and are built from the wood of a tree called The Jack Tree .I have had the chance to see those trees in Singapore so I deduct that they are well known in this part of the world.This tree has a special "seve " whish is like glue.This is why it is preferred to other trees.These wooden boats can if well treated be used over 20 years.
