Cultures by the sea

I am so intrigued by native cultures and the crafts they build and paddle sail around. I found these photos embedded in a Duran Duran Video, Save a prayer.
I love the log keel and the simplicity of this outrigger canoe; with three persons pulling it ashore I wonder how much it weighs?
Still debating winter projects; I have a work space down at the Rock River Canoe Company that I used to outfit the Cruiser and Sea Wind with the Balogh Boss System. It would be a good time for me as there are master craftsmen building canoes dories and tenders down there right now. Hmm the possibilities; deep cuts into my adventure travel activity fund, gotta think this one through.
