Fishing Boat-Canoe A

Typical boat at Lovina is a dugout canoe with some modern fittings and the outboard motor. The bulk of the hull is above the water, but the double outrigger makes it pretty stable. plumbing pipes are sometimes  used as outriggers, meeting requirements for a small, narrow outrigger built of the available materials.These types of canoes, with peaked up ends, were common in Oceania, including Southeast Asia and Melanesia in historic and prehistoric times.
