Re: Help Identify This Model

it looks like an adaptation of an arab dhow or(dhoni),commonly found on the east coast of africa,and still in use in large fleets,with sail its only propulsion apart from oars.
commonly about 25 ft in lenth,but can be bigger like the one in the pic i took in dar-es-salaam a few years ago.
