Been a bit busy building my own design Pahi (named Pahi iti) since last contributing to this forum and thus have not been able to follow up on requests to show what I was doing. Back when last writing here, I was sailing an outrigger proa (depicted in my avatar) and had built a model of an upsized canoe, a double canoe shunter, which was based on the historic Tuamotu group Pahi shunter and still had  ideas of converting a Wharram design to conform to the east Polyneian shunter config.....had plans of a Hinemoa in my posession that came with the tacker or cat canoe 'Owl' that had been a shared project with my son. Since the Hinemoa has distinctive bow and stern ends, a Wharram Pahi would be a better candidate for a proa conversion and a connecting structure, rig and cabin arrangement following Pahi iti style would be a distinct possibility. Just puting this here as a follow-up to previous posts, since I have managed to finally access this page again. Will try and post a pic of Pahi iti on the mainpage next
