After the keels are fixed well, the boat-makers coat the inside of the boat with canola oil. Generally speaking, the service life of a boat mainly depends on how the owner maintains it. Drying and coating with canola oil are the best way to maintain the yak boat.

Finally, dry the boat on a steel bucket.

The yak boat is quite appropriate for the rivers and lakes in Tibet. When the yak leather meets the water, it becomes soft, elastic and can resistant to impact or friction.
