 Welcome to Wikiproa






This site is intended to be a collaborative repository for articles on sailing proas, whether home or professionally built, modern or historical; for a definition of a 'proa', please see the wikipedia article here.  It's not intended to be a discussion site, since there's already an excellent proa discussion site on the web, the yahoo group proa_file, which is here.





Please feel free to wander about and have a look.  You don't need a password to view any of the pages.  If you would like to add content you are more than welcome to do so; for that you do need a password.  Email me at uaneill@gmail.com and I'll be happy to give it to you.  So start a page, even a small one, tell us about your boat!  You can go back and edit and add pictures and so on as you have the time
