The main body of an outrigger canoe is carved from a single tree trunk and the outrigger is attached to one side to stabilize it in the water. The extra stability enables these vessels to transport goods and passengers across the rough seas between the islands. They are also used for fishing and even racing. In recent times sails have been added to harness the power of the wind and cross the seas.
