Boat masters in the Mersin Fishing Shelter, Ordu's Persembe district continue to produce handmade traditional wooden fishing boats despite the developing technology.

Black Sea's distinctive fishing boat and Their taka is of the Black Sea are manufactured and launched with great care in the Mersin Fishing Shelter, in the Persembe district. The wooden boats, which are mostly preferred by the people who continue traditional fishing due to the durability of the boats that take about 3 months to build, are painted after they are finished and become ready for fishing in the Black Sea.

 Ahmet Öndeş (40), son of Şinasi Öndeş (70), said that he learned the profession from his father and worked in boat building for 10 years. Öndeş said, “My father has been doing this for 50 years. For the last 10 years, I have learned to build and repair boats with him. We build a boat in 3 months depending on the situation. We manufacture medium-sized classic boats from 90 thousand TL and classic taka from 25 thousand TL. "We build the boats from acacia, sycamore, acorn and cherry trees."
 
Öndeş added that the number of boat masters is decreasing and there are 9 boat masters left along Ordu coast.

President ordered a boat

On the other hand, Ordu Metropolitan Mayor Dr. Mehmet Hilmi Güler ordered a boat by showing a social municipality example to both encourage and revive the forgotten profession and provide economic input to the region.

Expressing that they want to encourage boat masters and revive their work, Ordu Metropolitan Mayor Dr. Mehmet Hilmi Güler visited the masters who built boats in Perşembe Mersin Fishing Shelter. “Our masters who build boats are about to decrease gradually. For this, I want to both encourage them and stimulate their work. As you know, two different boat construction is common. One of them is fiber and the other is boats made of old wood in the Black Sea style. I would like to bring the boats made of wood made with the old-style technique to our municipality in order to both show our guests coming to Ordu and revive the boat building. As a social municipality service and to contribute to our region, we held consultations with our masters ”.
