The pinas is a sailing vessel, built exclusively in the kuala (Malay: rivermouth). Of the Terengganu river. It was the largest of the ships built in the area, and is commonly used for deep sea navigation Sailing to distant Shores. The pinas carried two masts, one in the bow, called “Topan”, slightly raked forward, and the main mast, called “Agung” placed a bit forward of the center of the boat. The pinas had a very long bowsprit, slightly bent downwards by the bobstay.
A pinisi carries seven to eight sails on two masts, arranged like a gaff- ketch with what is called ‘standing gaffs’ – i.e., unlike most Western ships using such a rig, the two main sails are not opened by raising the spars they are attached to, but the sails are ‘pulled out’ like curtains along the gaffs which are fixed at around the center of the masts.
