Al Abra Transport Boat used on Dubai Creek
Al-Abra-Transport-Boat-used-on Dubai Creek.jpg
This is an example of one of the small boats used to cross the creek in Dubai. The boat uses traditional wood working techniques and the timbers are sealed with rope in the same way as the more famous dhow. The craft is quite small, only allowing room for five or ten passengers to be shuttled across the creek.
