Abstract

Majority of the non-mechanized craft in Karnataka are wooden and they are operated mainly in beach landing centers which hardly have any berthing facility. These boats are operating on daily basis and are hauled on to the beach after the operation to protect it from fouling organisms. The fishermen of Karnataka came up with the idea of wooden winch/ capstan named “Dhowr” for hauling the boat on shore. The following paper documents and report for the first time, the use of such unique, eco-friendly wooden capstan, “Dhowr” which is in operation in traditional beach landing fishing village of Karnataka.
