Some Information on Traditional Dhows;
The name commonly given to an Arabic boat is dhow, although Arabs more commonly refer to them collectively as khashab. It is interesting that traditional Dhow boats were considered to have similarities with camels. Camels were called ships of the desert, but their long necks and the masts of ships were also compared both for their forward-leaning appearance as well as the sinuous movement while traveling.
One of the beliefs of where the name “dhow” comes from is a funny story of the British sailor. Dhow means light, lamp in Arabic. The British sailor asks “what is that?” to a local with pointing at a boat with a lit lantern, and was told “dhow”, the local thinking the sailor was asking about the most obvious thing to be seen in the dark, the lamp.
