Check out my thread in "Collecting Tiki" regarding this incredibly detailed Outrigger Canoe:
http://tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=10038&forum=5&

I think this is a piece worthy of being reproduced and hung in a tiki bar. What to you think?

Sabu,
Leroy at Oceanic Arts carves something like this already. He's got a few of them hanging in various locales - one of them a Trader Joe's (although I don't remember which one). As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be surprised if this particular outrigger originally came from Oceanic Arts.

That is really cool. When I was in Vegas at the Trop, one of their bars had a similar canoe only it was about 20 feet long.

Sabu,

I don't know if 'hung' is the right word. I should know.
