ABSTRACT

Dug-out outrigger canoes, traditional fishing craft found from Madagascar in the west to Indonesia and the Pacific Islands in the east, are made from tree trunks of adequate diameter. But logs for construction of large canoes are becoming difficultto find and construction is consequently becoming more and more expensive. Dug-out construction also wastes a lot of timber. For each dugout canoe, two or three planked canoes can be built. The Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) undertook a project in Nias Island, Sumatera, Indonesia, and Shri Lanka to design and construct planked outrigger canoes that would provide an answer to the problems now being laced in building the traditional outrigger canoes.
