Seagrass Research in Palk Bay

Garmin etrex mounted on the glass wall

Self assembled navigation and chart plotter unit

Magic Ripples:  This kind of ripples formed when seaward wind changed into landward wind, which means we have to stop our work before the sea gets rough.

Lifting Yamaha 25 Hp engine is one of the essential task, So, I practiced to run about 200m with this engine.

The boat stands on muddy seagrass covered shore.  Here a fisher helps me to fix the engine in knee deep mud.

Trying to fix GPS for better signal reception

The best nature scenes available in Palk Bay, especially early morning hours show how human interact with mother sea for natural resources.
