Please help identify this boat

Hello!

First of all, I hope I have chosen the right subforum. If not, please excuse me.

An acquaintance of mine asked me to help him find some information about the boat in the attachment. Basically we don't know anything about it except what can be seen on the picture, so any information is welcome.

For example:
How is this type of boats called?
Where are they made?
What are they made of?
Are they factory-made or hand-built?
Is it possible to build such a boat by yourself?
Anything else you'd like to tell about it?

Thank you very much already for any information!

I believe that configuration is called a Proa. That one almost looks like you have to dismount the outrigger and change it to the other side on every tack.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

NO! Not true! On the port tack the flotation of the outrigger keeps the boat from capsizing. On the starboard tack the weight of the outrigger on that long lever acts as ballast and keeps the boat from capsizing.

A single outrigger rig is INCREDIBLY stable. A friend of mine had a 17' EasyRider canoe with an outrigger. We were setting and pulling crab pots under sail in 3ft of chop. At one point we BOTH stood up in his canoe in the three foot chop and switched positions on the boat.

Here is my friend in the boat I am talking about: Imagine 2 people standing in the boat in 3'chop....


The outrigger effect has to be experienced to be believed.

That's just cheap extra ballast - he's too old to hike out when the chop gets to 4' on port tack.
