A free-divers' boat grounded among oysters on the coast of Indian Ocean.
Indian legislation banned the trade and such vessels are docked for good.
Invited for the ride by my newly made Tamil friends from this little town, we came to the beach for a sunset. My driving friend invited me for snacks from a street stall and then riding the sand strip we sat on it too. A lot of Tamil jokes & giggles, mostly music to my ears.
An interesting paper that documents the traditional technique: http://www.new.dli.ernet.in/rawdataupload/upload/insa/INSA_1/2000c4e2_205.pdf.
