"Thai Boatbuilding" provides a glimpse of a grass-roots community recovery project in Thailand in the months following the December 26th, 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The project provided raw materials, tools and a sheltered work environment free of charge to local shipwrights whose fishing boats were destroyed by the tsunami. Volunteers from around the world helped construct and maintain the boathouse while the shipwrights constructed and launched their new boats. The project operated throughout 2005 into 2006 and provided scores of new boats for community members displaced by the tsunami.
