The Last Sailing Canoe of Mokil



Mokil is a Micronesian island near Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia.  If you've got a big old tree in your backyard that you'd like to get rid of, this video will show you how to put it to good use.
I built a 30' power catamaran on Pohnpei back in the 70's and what I think of while I watched this video was the heat and humidity.  I also remember that with enough Micronesians, you can carry a 30' cat hull down a very steep slippery jungle trail to the water.

The video says National Park Service at the end, as if it was produced by them. I couldn't find any info about any connection between the US NPS and Federated States of Micronesia or Mokil. Any idea what the heck the connection is?
