Bercadik the boat-shaped tip pointed (sharp) and the average white paint clean-engine boat was now replaced most of which are used Mandar fishermen since the last few years. Now, Sandeq increasingly marginalized. The fishermen, prefer a boat engine with a variety of reasons. "Using the ship is more practical because it is driven machine, whereas with sandeq we rely on the wind," Syarifuddin, fishermen Ba'barura, Tangngatangnga Village, District Tinambung, explains.
