TRADITIONAL ASSEMBLY WOOD SHIP KIT.

 

 

THE SHIP :

Forming part of the great family of the "boutres", this typical sailing ship of the Arabic Peninsula, is used as well for fishing as for the carriage of goods in the coastal traffic along the coasts of Eastern Africa.

Certain characteristics of the hull make it possible to make go up the origins of the sambuk to these Portuguese ships which, starting from 15th century, after having sailed round the African continent, went up along the southernmost coasts of Asia.

Even to the beginning of the 20th century, sambuk armed with parts of various guns, were devoted to the smuggling and the trade of the slaves intended for the markets of the Middle East.

To repress these illicit trade, the Italian Navy, during the colonial occupation, had armed the sambuk Antilope, Camoscio, Capriolo, Cervo, Daino, Gazzella and Zebra with guns of 37 mm.

These boats from 60 to 70 tons, and of which the crews of twenty men were composed of natives and Italians officers, were the last warships sailing only with sails. Nowadays, these sailing ships, very widespread still a few decades ago, are found hardly than at Red sea, in water of Aden and the Persian Gulf, where they are used to fish pearl-bearing oysters.

 

Motorized and generally without sails, they are now more known under the English term of "DHOWS".
