    This document is the Report of the Second FAO/Swedish Training Centre on Small Fishing Boat Design and Construction, which was held at Entebbe, Uganda, from 11 January to 6 March 1971, sponsored by the Swedish International Development Authority. The Training Centre consisted of a Boatbuilding Course and a Seminar for Fisheries Officers. In the Boatbuilding Course 20 boatbuilders from Kenya (6), Tanzania (6), Uganda (7) and Malawi (1) were trained in low-cost construction techniques in wood and ferro-cement. The emphasis was on practical boatbuilding. Two wooden boats were completed and launched: a 9.3 m boat based on the lines of the traditional canoe, adapted for outboard motor propulsion, and a 7.5 m boat with an 8 hp inboards diesel engine. The hull of a 12.6 m trawler built of ferro-cement was constructed up to the stage of engine installation and decking. The Uganda Fisheries Department was in charge of completion of this boat and covered the cost of the engine. The boat was launched at the end of January 1972 and has completed successful trials. Two similar boats will be built for an FAO/DANIDA Fishermen’s Training Centre. The Seminar for Fisheries Officers was held at the Fisheries Training Institute, Entebbe, 22-27 February 1971 with 37 participants from Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan, Uganda, FAO and industry. Eighteen papers on various aspects of fishing boat development in the Lake Victoria region were presented and will be published separately together with th e recorded discussions. The importance of the traditional boatbuilder was stressed in papers and during the discussion, as eas the necessity of integrating boatbuilding training in a master plan for the introduction of new boat types, provision of credit and fishermen’s training.

    Report on the Training course in small fishing boat construction. Freetown, Sierra Leone, 24 September - 14 December 1979 1980

    This report summarizes the activities of the Training Course in Small Fishing Boat Construction, held at the Fisheries Department Boatyard, Freetown, Sierra Leone, from 24 September to 14 December 1979, with the joint support of the Fisheries Division of the Ministry of Natural Resources, Sierra Leone, and the FAO/Denmark Government Cooperative Programme. The course was attended by 21 participants from eight African countries and was directed by the Master Boatbuilder from the Fisheries Divisi on and an FAO Consultant as Co-director, assisted by two full-time FAO consultants. Technical and administrative support was provided by the Fisheries Department, Rome, with cooperation from the FAO Representatives Office, Freetown. The objective was to upgrade the skills of the participants selected from private and government boatbuilding enterprises who already possessed a considerable degree of practical experience, in order to enable them to produce improved wooden boats of various types , and to disseminate their experience and skills amongst their immediate colleagues in their home countries. It was concluded from the participants’ continued interest and positive feedback that the course not only met its immediate objectives, but also indicated the need for further distinct courses, for both the artisanal level and a somewhat higher level. Emphasis during the course was placed on practical aspects of boatbuilding but during construction, related theory lessons were also orga nized each week. Three vessels were constructed during the course: one 9.07 m. flat-bottomed beach landing craft of planked lapstrake construction, one 8.7 m. V-bottom boat of seam batten planked construction and one 10.26 m. V-bottom trawler/seiner. The latter vessel, being larger than could be completely finished in the time span of the course, was intended to be outfitted by the Fisheries Division which would then employ it for their exploratory fishing programme and would use it as a m odel for further local constructions in the boatyard.

    TRAINING MANUAL on the construction of FRP beach landing boats 2010
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This manual on construction of fibreglass reinforced plastic (FRP) beach landing boats has been prepared primarily to assist small boatyards in Tamil Nadu, India that build beach landing fishing boats, but may also be used as a guide for making good quality FRP boats as well as for FRP training in the region. The manual should be seen as a supplement to FRP boatbuilding manuals available in the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and other international publ ications. It assumes prior knowledge of FRP hand lay-up processes and terms generally used in the industry. Recommendations on working conditions, materials and quality control are based on tropical ambient conditions and the type of boatyards likely to build such boats. Part I of the manual contains general information on FRP materials, handling and working conditions. Part II describes the building of a hull plug and a mould and Part III describes the building of a beach landing boat. Finally, Part IV contains information on manufacturing defects and repairs. The manual has four annexes that provide further information related to FRP boatbuilding. Annexes 1 and 2 contain a bibliography and a glossary, respectively. All drawings for the FAO IND-30 boat design are provided in Annex 3. Finally, Annex 4 contains the draft recommended construction standards for FRP fishing vessels. These standards are a part of the FAO/ILO/IMO Safety recommendations for decked fishing vessels of less than 12 m in length and undecked fishing vessels, which are currently under development.
