 I found this Balinese jukung on a recent visit to Hawaii.  It had a
 fiberglass hull and a transom for an outboard.

The most interesting part is the joint in the crossbeams that produces the "gullwing" shape.  The scarf joint had a dowel through it and some lashings.  I could not tell if any glue was used.



  1. they use glue... epoxy nowadays... the lashings are usually really heavy monofilament in a turks head drawn up very snug. You can still find traditional looking Jukungs on the road to Padang Bai from Sanur.

  2. I saw that boat behind the surf and sea in Haleiwa! Very cool. Hope you ate at Opal Thai--that place is spectacular.
