An outrigger and a Kalia behind it, Tonga.

 

 

A tongan proa.

 

 

A Kalia from Tonga (wikimedia)

 

 

The Ndrua of the missionaries (in Fiji, I suppose) (Wikimedia).

 

 

An 'Alia, the samoan version of a Ndrua.

 

 

Looks like a Fijian Camakau, not sure about this one (Wikimedia).

Tepuke from the Santa Cruz Islands, Solomon Islands.

 

 

Tepuke model. I need one! Scale 1:1 if possible!

 

 

Proas from the Caroline Islands. Notice that the sail lacks the funny S-extension of the boom found in modern Micronesia.

 

 

Model of the famous Flying Proa of the Marianas, Tinian Island.

 

 

A proa from New Caledonia. Notice that both hulls are identical, and the sail is more

similar to a Marshall Islands' walap than to a Fijian Ndrua.

 

 

Model of the same boat.

 

Drawing of a Tuamotu's Pahi, I think I got this one from Canoes of Oceania.

 

 

 

Another pahi drawing...

 

an another one...

 

and jet another.

 

 

Model of the Pahi.

 

 

Another picture, probably of the same model.

 

 

Another Pahi model.

 

 

A drawing of a Kiribati proa.

 

 

Model of the Kiribati proa, look at the gorgeous planking of the hull. Sadly, the ama attachement is broken/missing.

 

 

 

 

One of my favorites, from Sialum in New Guinea.
