    A French Engineer and sailor "Corentin de Chatelperron" made a revolutionary boat which is made by jute fiber. He made the boat in Bangladesh. His objective was to make "unsinkable" boat promote the natural fibre jute and to provide a better safety(from sinking) to the Bangladesh fisherman.

    You can get more information about the boat from the following links:
