I feel that Bob should be answering this one. I would call it a coracle or currach.

You are right of course, Bob should have answered that! I am away in Yorkshire at the moment and a little bit out of electronic touch!

Steven, I noticed, and forgot to mention, that they refer to Vietnamese Corracles but are missing information. They specifically ask for content. I wondered if you may be able to help with information on Vietnamese corracles. If so the contact is on this page. Let us know if you do.

tony h: I hope the following two links help. The second link, the writer calls the coracle "a basket boat".

We have been away on a short trip into England, so I wasn't able to do much to help Steven with his query.
I found THIS FOOTAGE from way back of coracle fishing on the River Teifi (not the spelling in the film!) a long time ago. There are still coracle fishermen in Wales, but not very many now.
