Chinedkeran is a traditional open-deck boat of the Ivatan people from the island of Itbayat in the Philippines. It is similar in size to the falua, with five to thirteen pairs of rowers and a single sail. It is characteristically wide with high strakes due to the rough seas surrounding Itbayat.[1][2]
