PJOA

Janusz Ostrowski, a long time proa designer and sailor from Poland, has a new proa design in production.  Molded in ABS plastic, it is even recyclable.

Moana



 If I could sail an outrigger like this girl, I'd be a happy man.  The modeling of the canoes is very good and the water is a great advancement from previous films.
While the canoe bodies and platforms are modeled on Fijian canoes, the sailing rig of the smaller canoe was the tacking type instead of the shunting rigs used by Fijians.  I guess we can call it "Oceanic Fusion".

I spotted this Harry Proa moored at Taipa on a recent camping trip to Northland, New Zealand.
