sabani

Definition

Noun

  1. A fishing boat; a row boat; a sail boat.
  2. A traditional small, elongated wooden boat with or without a sail used in Okinawa that would carry a group of people out fishing. It was originally made from pine wood, but was later replaced with cedar. Modernization of the boat has displaced the nail-less wood hull with a deeper metal one, and the paddles and sail, with a motor.
