What does the Outrigger look like?

An outrigger is a structure that extends from the side of a boat to provide stability.

It's a technology developed by the Austronesian people and comes in various forms depending on the vessel type.

In sailboats, an outrigger is a long, solid hull used to stabilize an unstable main hull, positioned parallel to it.

For fishing vessels, outriggers are poles that allow for more lines in the water without tangling.

In rowing, outriggers are triangular frames that hold the rowlock away from the gunwale to optimize leverage.

Modern outriggers can be made from various materials and are essential in traditional Austronesian boats, which include double-hull (catamarans) and single-outrigger vessels prevalent in the Pacific Islands.
