"Habjaas" dug out boats in Estonia.
These videos shows bronze age technology alive today. In Estonia the log boat traditions never died, but continued to coexist side by side with more modern boats as a cheap and low-tech alternative for building small boats and canoes. These amazing videos demonstrates the common origin of all lapstrake boats. They lack strakes, but display how the log is dug out and then expanded under heat by wooden sticks. After the expansion process is completed, permanent ribs are mounted on internal cleats on the inner walls of the log. The ribs are lashed to the cleats, just like in the earliest viking ships. The Habjaa is the direct link between the unexpanded logboat and the first lapstrake boats. The videos here are from the National Park of Soomaa.
