stepping on to a small boat

stepping on the small boat used in the kuttanad area of kerala is really an art..
these boats are called "kothumbu vallam"..
kothumbu vallam is very small.. about 4 feet long and one foot wide.
you have to really bend your lets and sit on your your calves...
this does not have that small piece of wood to sit on...

and you should have to balance the boat with the help of your body and the paddle...
