    Technical Trials of Beachcraft Prototypes in India - BOBP/WP/7 1980
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This is the first report of technical trials conducted in India of four beachcraft prototypes designed for India’s east coastfisheries. The trials were held in May-June 1980 in Ennore, 20 kilometres north of Madras, under the auspices of the Bay of Bengal Programme, in cooperation with the Governments of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. The report briefly discusses the limitations of traditional craft operating on India’s surf-beaten east coast and the desirability of developing new types of craft with greater carrying capacity and productivity. It discusses the additional considerations — as regards such matters as the shape of the boat, the construction material, the systems of surf-crossing and beachianding —that must weigh in the design of surfboats. It describes in words and pictures the four prototypes tested in Ennore, the conduct of the trials and the findings they yielded. The trials covered only surf-crossing and beachlanding. Of the four prototypes, two — considered the most promising — were selected for intensive fishing trials. The report sets down the relative merits of the four prototypes. The report may serve to keep governments, development agencies and boatbuilders informed about the progress of development of beachcraft. It may also be of interest to small-scale fisheries planners in general. The prototypes were built at Aquamarine (P) Limited, Madras; Indian Seacraft, Madras, and the Andhra Pradesh Fisheries Corporation Boatyard at Kakina da. Diesel engines were supplied by Greaves Lombardini Limited, Madras.

    Pivoting Engine Installation For Beachlanding Boats - BOBP/WP/44 1986
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper describes the efforts to develop an appropriate engine installation for boats designed and developed for fishermen in India and Sri Lanka operating from surf ridden beaches. These boats have to negotiate rough surf conditions for most part of the year with breaking waves up to two metres in height. The paper details the different types of pivoting engine installations tried out with air-cooled and water-cooled engines of different makes. The problems faced, the improvements made and the conclusions derived are set out. It also includes a detailed description of an installation. The detailed drawings are available with BOBP and may be obtained on request. The work on engine installations described in this paper was carried out by the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) as part of its beachcraft development project. It began in 1980. The first trials were conducted from a beach just outside Madras and were reported in BOBP/WP/7 “T echnical Trials of Beachcraft Prototypes in India.” The original concept of the pivoting engine box was conceived by 0. Gulbrandsen (Naval Architect Consultant) who also designed the first prototype. Further development described in this paper was done by the authors, assisted by BOBP Associate Professional Officers P.A. Hemminghyth (Marine Engineer) and SO. Johansen (Naval Architect), counterpart officers S.B. Sarma (Andhra Pradesh), E. Srinivasan (Tamil Nadu) and G. Patrick (Colombo). G. Gowing (Surf Crossing Consultant) from Australia also contributed several useful ideas. Trials were carried out in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Orissa in India and Sri Lanka. Another BOBP document of direct relevance to the subject described in this paper is BOBP/WP/45 “Further Development of Beachlanding Craft in India and Sri Lanka.”

    Further Development Of Beachlanding Craft In India And Sri Lanka - BOBP/WP/45 1986
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper describes eight new prototypes of beachlanding craft developed by the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). It also describes the technical trials of the craft with emphasis on surf crossing abilities. This working paper is a sequel to BOBP/WP/7, “Technical Trials of Beachcraft Prototypes in India” which described BOBP’s first trials of four prototypes.
