Two Uluas

Two of the fiberglass Uluas I built at least fifteen years ago for the New Zealand Te Toki Voyaging Trust.  Along with the 70' voyaging catamaran in the background, they are used to train young sailors and navigators.

Some Great News

“Canoes of Oceania,” originally published as three separate volumes from 1936 to 1938, has been reprinted in celebration of the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Bishop Museum Press, Hawai‘i’s oldest book publisher!
The book, authored by ethnographers A.C. Haddon and James Hornell, has long been regarded as a classic text for those interested in the techniques, forms, materials, and functions of ocean-going canoes throughout the Pacific. The trilogy serves as a significant reference and has become an important source of inspiration for recent generations of oceanic voyagers, including members of the Polynesian Voyaging Society.
