60' Steel Pacific Proa

It was designed by a local guy who went to polynesia and came back and built this craft from the measurements he took whilst there. The main hull draws about 2 feet and the outrigger about one foot.

In two days time we tow it up to a beautiful area called Nelsons Bay, [Australia] where it will be on a mooring and at last we can enjoy the real estate that we will take up.

Date: Thu, 28 Nov 1996 - We have now towed the craft, named "Feheluni" some witch doctor name, that means, "to take the men from their wifes" or something to that curse.
