  • Antique Sri Lankan Oruwa Outrigger Canoe
  • The oruwa has been around in Sri Lanka for thousands of years.
  • It plays an important role in the lives of those who live near the sea or rivers etc.
  • These sailing vessels have many purposes, such as being used for fishing, to cross rivers and lakes, and to transport cargo.
  • Oruwa are made of dugout wood such as jak, breadfruit, wild mango and teak trees.
  • The different parts are held together with choir rope in a criss cross pattern, this process is called "stitching".
  • The two booms connecting the hull to the float, are made from a single log, which creates a support platform for fishing gear and crew.
  • We reclaimed this from a private property in Little Aston who had it imported over.
  • This measures: 188" Long x 19" Wide x 32 ½" Tall (Max).
  • The oruwa boat and support gives it a max width of 92".
  • The boat is in one piece and the supports come into three pieces.
