I love that east-west synthesis, of a traditional proa using a dipping lug.
Hi GaryNice 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':http://www.flickr.com/groups/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
Thanks for letting me know about that. It is indeed a fine collection.
