@allenJo - They are simple boats; that’s why. I’ve seen pictures of these things and they look like things you could build yourself quite easily.
More importantly, they would be perfect if you’re one of those “lonely planet” types, who is always looking for hiking trails and places to go that are off the beaten path.
The coracles are simple to get in and row to your next destination. Plus, you can use them to go fishing. Imagine going on a trip and catching your own fish for dinner rather than spending money in the local restaurant.
That doesn’t quite fit me, but like I said, there are some people who like to do that sort of thing.
