“The outriggers of Indonesian double-outrigger canoes (jukungs) are as sophisticated in their design as they are rudimentary in the technology of their construction.
Many Balinese canoes have distinctive upward-curving outrigger booms, giving a graceful gull-wing appearance. The booms are lashed to the hull, and separate connector pieces are attached to the ends of the booms in a scarf joint, usually with a single wooden peg and lashings. The bamboo floats are attached to the lower ends of these connectors by lashings around the floats. Sometimes, the connector penetrates a hole in the float.”
