Great Source of Info for Indochinese Boats

This morning's blog post about Vietnamese woven boats was largely based on an article by Ken Preston in the current issue of WoodenBoat magazine. I forgot to mention Preston's wonderful website, The Wooden Working Boats of Indochina, a.k.a. BoatsAndRice.com. Here  you'll find not only more about woven boats, but also information about indigenous fishing and working vessels (both traditional and modern), motorized rafts (!), and lots more, organized both by boat type and by region. The site covers Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos and is full of great photos and clear explanations. Plan to spend a bit of time here.
