Navigation instruments from KB Aboobacker. Kavaratti, Lakshadweep.

KB Aboobacker, was one among the many learned navigators or navigation experts who contributed to Dr. Lotika Varadarajan's research on navigation in Lakshadweep.

Much is not known about KB Aboobacker, but his instruments and their local names are very valueable for the information we get about ancient mariners of the Indian ocean and their knowledge of the seas.
