A fine collection of canoe photos from Papua New Guinea.

I love that east-west synthesis, of a traditional proa using a dipping lug.

Hi Gary
Nice to see someone with a heart for outriggers. Mine is without a sail, and is parked at Tufi, PNG, awaiting my next opportunity to visit.
You might want to check out my Flickr group 'Traditional Canoes':

In some months time my book about village life at Tufi will be finished, and there is a canoe chapter there, of course.

Cheers,
Mr Jan, Bergen, Norway
