yo, vipul. where are you from? i can't believe you don't know anything about banca and dinghy. i suppose those terms are not known to you because you call small boats by another name in your country or locality. actually both are just small boats. bancas are dugout canoes at the simplest construction, while dinghys are small manufactured boats. outriggers are bamboo or wood floats tied to the banca to keep it stable. dugouts are known everywhere, and dinghies are used in inland waters. so what are your terms for them?
