Jukung


 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.
