Traditional Fishing Boat Bali.
The colourful traditional fishing boats that line the coastal shores of “Seseh beach” are known as jukung. The Balinese generally use jukung for fishing. These boats will venture out into the coastal waters in the early morning and return with their catch before mid-day to sell at local seafood markets. However, the impact of tourism has meant that many of the island’s traditional fishermen can now supplement their limited incomes by taking paying passengers to surfing and snorkel at offshore reefs and neighbouring islands.
With an average length of approximately 5-metres and width of just 1Â½ -metres, a jukung can safely carry only two or three passengers. Larger models built using the same traditional design methods, utilize outboard motors and can carry the Surfers with surf equipment to the surf spot.
The majority of jukung are built using a set of dimensions that are closely related to the owner’s personal body measurements. The Balinese strongly believe in harmonizing with the physical environment and spiritual world, thus human measurements are used in an effort to balance these invisible forces. Just like a human body, a jukung is not symmetrical. In fact, the bamboo floats that are attached to both sides and run from the bow to the stern are not even parallel. Yet this basic, but ingenious design gives the jukung a heightened degree of stability when out on the open seas.
