About: A typical dragon boat has a wooden dragon head attached to the bow, a dragon tail at the stern and the hull decorated with red, green and blue scales edged in gold while dragon boats of Wuyi have their own feature. They are distinguished from each other by the color of dragon heads which ranges from red, yellow, white, black, silver, gold, green and grey. Paddlers seated on the boat are in the same color with the dragon head. Looked at from a distance, the river is bedecked with “dragons” in different colors. In addition, dragon boats are made of pontianak wood which is tough and water-proof. But pontianak wood can be eroded by the north wind and sunshine, so dragon boats are usually buried in the silt at the bottom of the river and pulled out for races.
