SHIPYARD  Trabzon  Sürmene   2020, January

Mountains running parallel to the coast along the eastern Black Sea coast descend more steeply to the east as you go east. Flat areas suitable for settlement on the beach are almost non-existent, because of heavy rain, the mountains are covered with forests and dense vegetation. The streams formed by the waters coming from the mountains in the valleys are natural passageways that facilitate access from the coast to the inner part.
In this geography, those who cannot make a living in narrow agricultural land have turned to the sea. The brutal Black Sea, which is not at all merciful, nevertheless left shelters for fishermen with its small and small bays. Fishing shelters were established in these shelters and local fishing boats were anchored in each of them.
One of the small bays decorated with eastern spruce pine trees, whose branches lick sea water, is in Çamburnunda. Çamburnu Bay of Sürmene town, which is as old as the history of Trabzon, opened its arms to the local people who made a living with fishing and protected them from the rush of the raging waves. This bay, which displayed the unique beauties of the Black Sea, which previously hosted the shelter and repair workshops of small fishing boats, has turned into a shipyard for the repair and maintenance of big fishing ships in recent years.
In order to satisfy the greed of insatiable people, there was a need to build huge fishing boats suitable for more fishing. During the maintenance and repair of these boats weighing hundreds of tons, huge chains were produced to pull them out of the sea and place them on the ramps on the shore. Dursun, whose ring with a ring weight of tens of kilos, had spent years working in ship repairs, was a bit of an effort to bring a little closer to the ship to be removed from the water.
