Construction Manual For Capstans and Transportable Slipways - IDAF Programme

Taking into account the difficulties in landing an artisanal canoe on these coastal areas with predominant heavy swell and the tidal waves phenomenon, IDAF (Programme for Integrated Development of Artisanal Fisheries in West Africa), in collaboration with Departments of Fisheries of countries concerned, trained small artisanal mechanics and welders on the construction of manual capstans and transportable slipways for the quick hauling of artisanal fishing canoes.
