    At 70 yrs, old, never thought I’d live to see this most fantastic voyage of the Hokulea, sailing beyond the Pacific! I was a shipwright in Honolulu in the 1970″s when Herb Kane asked me to help build the “Holulea”, just after I’d built my own 52′ Catamaran named “Melekai”. After meeting the” Holulea” on her arrival in Tahiti, I carried on with wife and kids, and sailed around the world, mostly using Polynesian navigation I leaned from David Lewis and Mau Pilog. “Melekai” also is still sailing strong in Mexico. Best wishes in light of your most beautiful theme, and fair winds to you all… Mahalo, Capt. Steve
