Takia (watercraft)

Takia are a traditional watercraft of Fiji. They are a type of outrigger canoe that is smaller than a camakau, in turn smaller than a drua. A takia hull is a dugout made from any suitable wood. They rarely have sails, and do not feature a centreboard. An oar is used as a rudder.[1][2][3]
