A Paraw sailboat is a typical Philippino double outrigger sailboat. The traditional Visayan sail boat are originally used for fishing and transport of goods and people to sail between the islands.
It has a main sail and a gibb. It takes at least two people to sail it. Since it does’nt have a keel, it takes one person to be on the outriger to keep the sail boat in balance. This person is called a “balancer”.
The hull of a paraw is fairly slim and only one person will sit in the actual boat - the “Captain”. Passengers will sit on the outriggers.
