With advertising or not, everything just seems prettier in Tahiti. Note the stout forward crossbeam and the slim flexible one aft.

Aitutaki Paddling Canoes
I took these photos during a visit to Aitutaki in the Cook Islands in 2008. Some are dugouts but most are flat bottomed plywood. They are mostly used in the shallow area of the lagoon and are pushed along with a long pole.

temporary leeboard, and a paddle to steer.
