UUM ONLINE: Punting refers to boating in a punt. The punt is a long, narrow and flat-bottomed boat with a square-cut bow and straight sides, designed for use in shallow waters. The punt is made of white pine, white cedar or cypress wood.

The punt is propelled forward with the use of a long pole made of spruce wood or aluminium and composites. The punter generally propels the punt by pushing against the river bed with the pole.

Punts were originally built as cargo boats or platforms for fowling and angling. According to the history of punting, the punt became very popular on the Thames, England between 1860 and 1880. In addition, around the 1900s, the punt became popular in Cambridge that is on the river Cam and on the river Cherwell in Oxford.
