The Opelu


The photo above is of a model of the Opelu Hawaiian canoe featured in Tommy Holmes' book The Hawaiian Canoe.  The model was built by Tevita Kunato who is now carving a 19 footer from an albezia log in Hawaii.  Follow his progress here and here.

  1. Very interesting rocker curve forward. I assume the crew weight is more aft than center?
