Bokkura and Mas’Dhoni (Maldivian vessels) anchored in the lagoon and the shore:
Maldivians are blessed with beautiful lagoons in every island, these lagoons are traditionally used as the jetty or harbor. The fishing vessel is anchored in the deeper area of the lagoon, normally its far from the shoreline, and the small vessel is anchored just next to seashore, where the fisher man can use this small boat to embark the fishing vessel anchored far in the lagoon.
Still you can experience this old technique of anchoring boats in the Maldives islands.
To see that visit to Maldives.
