Escape Cover

Dhows come in a vast array of sizes. This one is a fishing dhow like the three owned and operated by the Alexis family but it is in much worse condition that any boat Katina's father would go to sea in.

I chose this photo because you can see how hard the crew are working and how much team work is required to raise and lower the sail.

The second photo gives you a good look at the fabric of a sail in good condition. You can see how taut the sail is as well as the wooden mast and yard.
