The star path, the succession of rising or setting guiding stars down which one steers, was known as the avei`a by the Tahitians... .... this is analogus to the kaveinga of the Tongans and the kavenga of Tikopia...
This is a succession of stars toward which the bow of the conoe is pointed. Each is used as a guide when it is low in the heaven; as it rises up overhead it is discarded and the course is reset by the next one in the series. One after another these stars rise till dawn...

Nev was looking at the way you tension your webbing and he is highly impressed with that clever and simple method. Me too.
