I guess it's cool that some dude on Lake Titicaca still builds ships out of reeds. But it's hard to imagine this proud tradition lasting more than another generation as motorboats speed past. I like, though, that Thor Heyerdahl was able to find a guy who built watercraft out of reeds so that he could test his theory.

I didn't read the book so I always assumed that Thor built his own boat.
