So this weekend we installed King Kai in the Mai Kai gardens. Just in time for The Hukilau. We aren't done yet - but that's another story. Here are some pics of the install.

Great job Will! Here are a few photos from Sunday's ceremony ...

Now that King Kai & the 3 stooges are done.
I'm focused on the last project on my plate to freshen up the Mai-Kai for Hukilau.

Remember the 2 ash trays that were stolen
from the front door about 7 years ago?
I want to revisit that but this time I
put a GPS in them so we can catch the bastard.

I hope to finish up the painting today & install them tomorrow.
Also I got this big ol PNG shield going on.
