This is a handcrafted model of the Hawaiian Canoe. Come with sail and outrigger. The model was made of wood using planking on the frame construction method. Take about 50 hours to finish. Come with a wood stand and metal name plate. Mast fold down for easy packaging.
- Traditionally, the outrigger frame has always been fitted on the left side of the canoe. The Hawaiian outrigger canoe is but one of hundreds of outrigger types across the region of Oceania, encompassing Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. The stabilizing framework attached to the canoe hull across canoe spreader bars by means of traditional lashing techniques using cordage, consists of two iako or spars, at the outer end of which the ama or float is attached. Many traditional skills are associated with the practicing of both the rigging and paddling of outrigger canoes. In relation to rigging, skill and knowledge of lashing techniques and the trim of the ama and iako in relation to the canoe are skills that can take many years of experience. It is this adherence to tradition that makes outrigger canoe racing and paddling unique in a world where many traditions and cultural recognitions have been eroded.
