Chuck Shipman interview

In the year 2000, Tim Anderson visited Chuck Shipman on the North shore of Oahu in Hawaii. The visit resulted in a great interview covering many things about Hawaiian and Micronesian canoe design and history.
The above photo illustrates Tim's method of "taking the lines" off a proa from Kapingamarangi, a Polynesian atoll in the Southern area of Micronesia.
