The increasingly high price and scarcity of wood requires finding other alternative materials as a solid wood substitute material for construction of fishing boats. This alternative material is expected to gradually substitute part of the construction of wooden boats or even can replace part of the ship's construction as a whole. One alternative material that has the potential to substitute solid wood is bamboo. High tensile strength of bamboo is very likely to be used as a substitute for solid wood. Moreover, the price of bamboo is very accessible by fisherman as the fishing boat operators. Another fact which shows that the population of bamboo in Indonesia is very much and sufficient for the needs of fishing boat construction. Recently, frame manufacture of solid wooden boat is quite difficult and expensive. Therefore, to make fishing boat frame, it is necessary to choose substitution material so it is easy to make and cheaper price. Fishing boat frame is an element of construction which is generally curved shape. To make laminated bamboo frame according to the shape of the boat, it is required an auxiliary equipment fabrication refers to the body plan of fishing boat. Within the bamboo laminated frame fabrication equipment, the production of fishing boat frame might be easier, cheaper, fitted in shape and size of the fishing boat and faster manufactured. The Fabrication equipment has been proved by applying to produce fishing boat frame of 5 GT. In the mass production process of fishing boat frame, this equipment prototype is proven more efficient. This can be observed by making 6 pieces of fishing boat frame of 5 GT within a day. However, the equipment manufacture of laminated bamboo frame will be most applicable for constructing a series fishing boat.
