Hong Quan-Rui was born in 1948 into a carpenters’ family in Donggang, Pingtung, Taiwan. When he was 20 years old, he began to undertake projects such as constructing gigantic wooden fishing boats and making shipping cases. When he was put in charge of temple design and construction projects, he applied boat-building techniques into the overall design and woodworks’ construction. He served as a committee member of the Zhenhai (Sea Calming) Temple for years, and he was also the director of the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute.
 
He has visited several seafaring nations, gathering information to study both Chinese and Western ships. He has improved techniques and constructed more than a dozen ancient sailing ship models. He made the ship models one sixtieth of the real size, and each one of them is in compliance of the navigation standards. The Dragon Boat Floating Restaurant was based on the journey Emperor Yang of Sui took to Jiangnan. Hong designed and crafted the restaurant on his own, including a cabin with palace style- architecture and full of Chinese characters.
 
Later, he applied shipbuilding techniques to the Dragon Racing Boats, and many boats from different cities in Taiwan were designed and made by Hong, including the Dragon Boats displayed in Portland and Washington DC. Hong wishes to preserve Taiwan’s traditional shipbuilding techniques, and to build Zheng He Treasure Ship Art Museum and the Museum of Natural Sailing Boats, in order to help the shipbuilding technology to flourish.
