Entering under the Golden Gate Bridge at San Francisco Bay.


They are now in my home port of Los Angeles at Cabrillo Beach: welcoming festivities are planned for this Saturday. I will try to go and take pictures. My wife practices hula with one of the local halau, and her kumu (teacher) will be one of those chanting at the welcoming.

Hey guys. I know this is an old thread, but does anyone have any new info/experiences/sources on these rigs? I'm keen to have a go at setting up something like this rig on my Ulua build. Thanks all.
