Stranded boat

Stranded boat
Oil on board
6x8 inches

When the tide goes out a number of fishermens boats become stranded along the beach.Up close one can see that each boat has been handmade,with only the most basic tools.You would imagine that due the the large amount of patches and loose caulking between the planks the boats would battle to remain afloat.However despite looking unseaworthy,they are actually quite well made considering that the builders did not have any access to electric tools.Many of the boats have been painted vivid colours which certainly adds to the beauty of the Mozambican coastline.
