1053. Beypore's Sailboat

    Newer Older

    This was the traditional architecture of sailboats made in Beypore. The last such boat sailed off more than ten years ago. I had seen these boats several years ago in the port of Basra, Iraq. Such boats used to carry a lot of mechandise between Kerala coast and the Gulf. This is a model kept in my living room in Calicut . The new ones have no sails. They have powerful engines and propellors

      This is model of a very beautiful ship. In a way, its too bad they have done away with sails and masts.

      Nice shot! When I went to calicut few years back, I also purchased one such model. So many traditions are dying !! Sad story of our times.

      Sail boats were always at the mercy of the wind. One of the reasons that they are no more in vogue (except for sports)
      Those were the days when people risked their lives to make it from one shore to another in these boats.
