 The hull is about 65/70 feet long double ended two masted with a single square sail on each mast. It has been built in the Traditional way on a beach. There is no iron / steel or wooden Treenails in the constrution "all the planks are sewn togeather with coair fiber [coconut] 100and 20 thousand stitches. today was about the build the next will be fitting out and sailing to Singapore from Oman        Worth watching
