'Aries Chundan', the first ever snake boat made of steel, is all set to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for accommodating the largest canoe crew of 141.

The boat, a design wonder crafted by Aries Marine and Engineering Services, performed the feat on May 1 with a crew of 141 rowers in the Punnamada Lake in Alapuzha, The existing record was held by traditional snake boat for accommodating a crew of 118. The annual snake boat race in Alapuzha is a major tourist attraction.

The 143-feet long Aries chundan had already found a place in the Limca Book of Records as the longest snake boat made of steel.

This innovative steel snake boat had a scientific design which was based on the latest scientific methods in Naval architecture.. The Aries chunden's shape and stability had been designed using the world famous 'AUTOSHIP' software. The strength had been analysed by finite element method and an overhanging test was also conducted to analyse the longitudinal strength practically and a sinking test to prove its 'unsinkability'.
