Outrigger Canoes of Bali and Madura, Indonesia

This is quite simply the best source of information about an area that has literally tens of thousands of double outrigger canoes. You will see sailing rigs, rudder systems and crossbeams unlike anything used in the Pacific. Horridge also includes a chapter on the evolution of Pacific canoe rigs and how this subject was treated by other writers.
You can order this book from Amazon or from the Bishop Museum in Honolulu.
