Getting Around in Lake chad
[add Local transport mode]
Just a note: Thor Heyerdahl made a second reed raft, the Ra2, with the same crew of Lake Chad fishermen, and successfully sailed to South America, no a reed lost. The issue with the first boat, the Ra, was that halfway across the ocean, the crew cut a crutial line connecting the prow and stern, causing the boat to list to one side. The expedition failed because of an approaching hurricane.
