u can get to see similar Boats in Karwar. Its because of the massive Arabian influence on the West Coast of India, more particularly, Karwar. Our Port is located in the Bay/village called Baithkol. Baithkol in Persian means - Baith-e-khol meaning Bay of Safety. This is mush proof of the Arabic influence, on the Sea Faring industry of Karwar.
