You know, when i googled some information to talk about a thai long boat (transparency, i don’t know everything about the long boat, which makes this job cool, i have to consistently learn new things) i didn’t know what i would find.
but here’s something interesting for you 😱. obviously the long boat is a native to southeast asia boat (clearly, everybody knows these things). but! did you know that the thai long boat has is dying?? i’m 1989, the thailand government banned logging on its natural forrest’s (🥳). this lead to a shortage of timber, forcing people to import timber if they wanted to make more long boats.
due to this, there aren’t many new boats being designed, and prices of these iconic boats have gone up 70 time (ya, 70) from what they use to be.
what used to average $83 no costs over $5,500.
the only thing that has inflated at the same rate in the same amount of time is college tuition (joking, but not really).
