Rarotonga, Cook Islands

 From the Cook Island News
Of the boats he's built, Brent Fisher has named three for his family, blending the names of his children with that of his wife Annie.
Theres the Lou-Anne, the Peka-Anne now serving fish and chips as the Flying Boat and then theres the Corey-Anne, which is making its comeback after a 20-year hiatus.
Corey Fisher is building a business out of his namesake. Hes started up Fishin Tourz aboard the Corey-Anne, which he moors at Avana. Adorned with a Tangaroa carving by Mike Tavioni, she is a 26-foot outrigger.
I just enjoy taking people out, so I decided to put her back in the water, he said.
Fisher says he takes people out spearfishing, fishing and cruising for $90 a pop. The price, he says, includes all gear and transfers to and from the wharf, and up to four hours of angling.

I like those spray-rails on the bow of his vaka.
