Kaić was first renovated in 1969, but built much earlier (according to the model, the year of construction was around 1920 in the area of the island of Pašman, the shipbuilder is not known). The boat was used as an auxiliary boat to a traditional sand extraction boat (gajeta, 7-8 m long). Afterwards, the boat was used for fishing in the Pašman channel.
