Pics of Tahitian Canoes

Bartman, sorry to be so slow... Hope those pics can help.

Those are pics of a "training" V6. It's a Brander. In Kanu Culture, Vol10 2004, you can see Outrigger Australia paddling the same canoe in a channel race in the Marquesas.

Thank you, Hiro.

By how much does the stern of the Tubuai Manu stay above the waterline ? How long is that boat ?

Big thank you from me too Hiro, i thrive on this stuff.

I have similar pics but with texta profile lines drawn every ft. (looks like a Zebra) From that you can loft a complete canoe with almost perfect accuracy.

Cheers Rambo
