    Proa enthusiasts ( that might still be out there) may be interested to see this Pahi getting closer to launching. Here the hulls and decks have been joined and masts got up with temporary rigging, in order to work out where gear and deck fittings are to go. Happening in the compound of the Whangarei Cruising Club. Craft is supported on dollys and can be wheeled around, as will be the case when the launching takes place... hopefully soon. SInce I will be laid up in hospital from early November, time should be available to write-up more on the design and details of this type proa, which I will be adding to the SO Pahi thread.Pahi iti masts standing.jpgPahi deck shot.jpg

    Kenjamin,

    I used to race against some old guys about 40 years ago.
    In Texas.
    I was in shorts and no shirt, they were in long white pants and long sleeved white shirt, with a tennis hat.
    At the end of a 3 hour day I was burned and completely out of energy.
    These old guys were just a fresh as they started and talking about going to do something else.

    Perhaps a complete coverup would do well.
    I've even seen T200 guys wear masks.

    Resting in the shade of a dck tent/tarp during the day (as multihull stability allows), could make the cool of night-time more suitable for sailing?
