This is a boat.

But is it just 1.5 hp split unit that will cool the living compartment?

Kudos to the engineers though.

Firstly, that is a boat.

Secondly, these are fabricated daily in Trans Amadi, Rivers State.

So, if it is Akwa Ibom's first locally made boat, they are welcome to the club.

Hunchogee:

It's a small ship cos it run on kompressors not propellers..
The difference is not only the size but the driver and the purpose it was made..
Boat are generally used for fishing while ships are for transportation..
They are large boat that are bigger than smaller ships

You don't know what a ship is. Ships are bigger than yatchs, which is bigger than boats.


This one you posted here are boats (what they call flying boat).

The name is given depending on the purpose not size.. The are large boat that are bigger than a ship.
Ships are run by kompressors while both are run by propellers..

Do you people really know what a ship is? That piece of thing over there can't pass for a prototype. If you don't do what what can't do, that's not a problem; but If you don't do what you can do, that's a disaster. Just call it a boat and let's rest.

The 2021 year calendar for most Nigerians is a difficult year, as the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has made big announcements on Sunday 10, January that it had made a presentation of National Identification Number (NIN) compulsory for all categories of vehicle registrations in the country.
