For the second fibre glass fishing boat order of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation) another training of the fishermen has been offered by TaraTari before handing over.
The training of the fishermen to this new technology and different handling methods is essential to us (TaraTari) in order to ensure the good start of this second phase; technology evolution for fishing boats of Bangladesh.
During the 2 days training, the fishermen received formal courses on handling the boat, using the safety equipment delivered with it, handling the sail for optimum sailing condition, etc…
Those two days have been quite wet (and not because of the sea state) due to monsoon season, but everybody was happy to spend time on the water and in the classroom.
The next day, during the handing over, fishermen are granted a certificate of competency in Fibre Glass Fishing Boat Handling along with the user guide, to ensure correct use and maintenance of the boat, for the coming years.
