The research began in Tanzania by visiting several places and asking locals how and at what price to build a dhow with large dimensions. The dhows built these days are mostly small due to the change in sea transport introduced by cargo ships.

There was a lot of misinformation about the best place to begin work, making the research process difficult.

Although the information collected was not so encouraging, the Musafir decided to go to Kenya, where the hope was to find the right people and the right place to start the construction.
