A dhow is a traditional sailing vessel used in the Arabian Gulf and the Indian Ocean. Dhows are usually wooden boats, with a lateen sail and a large centerboard. They are typically used for fishing, trading, and transportation.
Dhows have been used in the Arabian Gulf and the Indian Ocean for centuries. They were first used by Arab traders to transport goods between the Middle East and India. Over time, they developed into a variety of shapes and sizes, from small fishing boats to large cargo vessels.
Dhows are typically made of wood, although some are made of steel or fiberglass. The hull is usually painted white, and the sails are often brightly colored. The lateen sail is a triangular sail that is attached to a long yardarm. The centerboard is a large board that is used to help the dhow stay upright in the water.
Dhows are powered by the wind, and they are usually steered by a tiller. They can be sailed in both directions, and they can be used in shallow waters. Dhows are often used to transport goods and people between islands, and they are also used for fishing.
Dhows are an important part of the culture and history of the Arabian Gulf and the Indian Ocean. They are a symbol of the region’s maritime heritage, and they are still used today for fishing, trading, and transportation.
