Wow dhow

A dhow, the traditional wooden vessel, resting at the harbor. These boats were used in the early times for livelihood, long before the rise of oil and gas in Qatar. Typically sporting long thin hulls, dhows used to carry heavy items like fruits, freshwater or merchandise, along the coasts of Arab countries, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and East Africa. Larger dhows have a crew of around 30, while smaller ones would have around 12.
