Old-form Va'a Motu from Tahiti, based on diagrams in Haddon & Hornell's "Canoes of Oceania," Doran's "Wangka: Austronesian Canoe Origins" and Neyret's "Pirogues Ocenaniennes."  Western drawings of this canoe type go back to the 1770s.  By the 20th Century, this sail form had been replaced with spritsails of western form.
