Festival Dragon Boats
Most cities and counties in Kaohsiung and Pingtung commission Mr. Hong to make their festival dragon boats. There are two sizes for dragon boats. No. 1 is approx. 39 feet and 3 inches in length, 5 feet and 1 foot in width, with a ratio of 20/1. The draft line is 1 foot and 7 inches deep. The dragon boat was made with integrally-moulded glass fibre, with meranti wood as the frame. With a weight of 650 kilograms, this boat can accommodate 20 rowers, 1 helmsman, 1 drummer and 1 flag-catcher. With airtight containers and anti-slide wood bars in the aisle, this boat is safety, practical and beautiful.
The dragon head and tail are in a streamlined shape, with the appropriate portions. The contour of the head is smooth, because the dragon god is powerful but not fierce. Its head, nose, eyes, long beard and scales give a feeling that the dragon god is warm and approachable. The eyeball painting by the chief each year gives the dragon the austere awe. The colour-painted hull is the scales of the dragon. The hall and rising tail is the finish-off. This dragon boat is the classic piece of work.
