"I'm thinking it is a Tane, but with considerably bigger cabins than I've seen on any.  Hard to tell though- I haven't seen any Tanenuis in person."

Shawn replied to Martin's discussion I rediscovered a set of plans for a 27'6" Tane......
"That's my boat!  Moku'ola in Hilo Harbor.  Graeme- if you buy the plans, I'd be interested in full size copies.  I'm just too broke to buy them right now...  "

"Not totally unreasonable, but more than I can do right now on my budget.  I'll keep it in mind and get back to you.  Thanks!"

"I have a Tane project boat and would love to have the original plans or even digital copies.  Mostly just as a curiosity, to see how it all went together, as I'm customizing mine into a sail-powered commercial fishing vessel.  I…"

"Cool beans, John!  There are at least three other Wharrams that I know of in Hilo right now (still might be a couple of them for sale, if anyone is interested).  Definitely message me if you make it over here."

"Aloha Shawn, I live on Oahu and get over there to Hilo every once in a while to see friends. I will have to look you up next time I get over that way. I have a Tiki 21 in Portland, Or. that I am trying to ship over to Oahu hopefully by the end of…"

Wharram Tane 'Moku'ola'

"Well he was no sailor that is for sure although he did serve his apprenticeship as a riveter in the Glasgow dockyard. And probably his early audiences in the working men's clubs would have included many dockers / sailors. But that is as close…"

Wharram Tane 'Moku'ola'

"Aloha Galway- this photo was from the previous owner- I am now grinding out rotten wood on the hard nearly 4000' up at the summit of Kilauea Volcano and hope to turn Moku'ola into an eco fishing vessel.  Who's Billy Connolly?! :)"

Wharram Tane 'Moku'ola'

"Well done !!  A beautiful boat in a beautiful part of the world. But why are you using an old photo of Billy Connolly circa 1975 as your avatar ?"

It really could have been sailed gently as it was, but Hawaii waters are rarely gentle, so I've begun grinding out rot in the starboard hull, which had leaky hatches and hinge blocks.  The port hull is in good shape- I'll get some interior pics up soon.

Ahoy Shawn, or Aloha Brah,

     Guess what, my sister lives in Mountain View, I was just there Easter, Merrie Monarch.  Ha.  Good luck on your restoration.  Great harbor in Hilo, the coast is rough, but you can scoot around to the Kona side when it gets too rainy.  Catch an Ahi for me.

Aloha Shawn,

I live on Oahu and get over there to Hilo every once in a while to see friends. I will have to look you up next time I get over that way. I have a Tiki 21 in Portland, Or. that I am trying to ship over to Oahu hopefully by the end of summer. A Polynesian cat should be in Polynesia! Hopefully I can figure it out and get that thing over here. 

All the best, John.
