    The Village of Wera lies on the northeast tip of Sumbawa island in Indonesia.These traditional “Phinisi” boats are hand built on the beach with traditional methods and materials… using no blueprints or calculations! The Bugis people who built the boats are well known for their maritime knowledge, boat building skills, and their pirating past.
