Aloha mai kakou. A very rainy January have delayed crucial varnishing and lashing of Moʻokihaʻs superstructure, and make it impossible to launch before the important remediation of Mala Wharf. We are pushing our target launch date to the next full moon high tide in mid-May. This gives us about 100 days to get Mo’okiha o Pi’ilani ready for the water. We are grateful for the generous support and understanding of our grantors, sponsors, donors and volunteers as we prepare for this historic maiden voyage. Please visit 525 Front Street to see Moʻokiha and be a part of applying the final touches. We welcome all hands to help us finish Maui’s Voyaging Canoe.
