However, nowadays fishermen face the problem of solid wood scarcity as a material for reparations and the construction of new boats. In order to solve this problem, research has been carried out on the use of bamboo slats laminate as a substitute for solid wood. The output of this study shows that the laminated material of the bamboo slats has mechanical properties that meet the classification requirements …
