The building Stoney was lucky to be able to store his Waka in, is being repurposed and he has had to move it.
A couple of weeks later he had to move it again.
The waka is okay where it is, for now, but shelter will be needed soon.
Stoney explains the origin of the name Pahi, one of the last Waitaha boat builders.
Pre-Maori, ocean cruising, double hull technology at its best.
Cementing a strong Southland connection.
If your are unfamiliar with the story of Stoney and his Waka have a look at my post –New Zealand Double Hulled Voyaging Waka.
