Marshall Islands Proa



There has been a renaissance in sailing traditional canoes in the Marshall Islands. This canoe from Ailuk appears to have it all under control.

These Ailuk Canoes are amazing. Do you have any details on dimensions or construction? I've seen pictures of several identical ones sitting next to each other on the beach, so surely its not a dugout? I'm building a T2 in Queensland, but looking at these makes me want to scale it up a notch. Cheers for writing such a easy to understand book.
