Late '70's, off the coast of Maui onboard the Kea...something.

I don't recognize the boat, but I do recognize Tony Orlando. Wonder where Dawn is?

Hey Dusty, Another great post. I love those photos. I have been looking for a old pontoon boat in my area to build something like those. I have looked at a few but I just have not found the right one yet. This really gets me inspired. It will be named the "Pon Tiki"
Since a few models were posted here are mine. The built one is one my brother built for me a few years ago. I brought it back from the big island and gave it to him because our grandparents brought us back the same kits in the early 70s when they went to Hawaii. He built it and donated it to my tiki room. The big unbuilt model he found for me at a car swap meet a year ago. You can see it is much bigger than the typical little gift shop outrigger kit. Made in Hawaii by Anekona. Tapa cloth sail. The illustrated history of the Hawaiian outrigger canoe book is dated 1969. So that dates the kit. I do not know how long they made them but it is really cool.

I found this ad in the 1978 Burbank / Glendale yellow pages, it features the Tahiti Boats logo ~

Thanks to everybody for adding the great Tiki Boat images to this post.

Bora Boris nice find on the Tahiti Boat logo, I was wondering what that looked like.

I spent all day on the ocean yesterday and decided I need to add some more boats. Here are a few more postcards of some "land based" Tiki Boats.

This is the outrigger that used to be in front of the Bali Hai restaurant in Shelter Island, San Diego



This is the outrigger buffet at the Panalu'u Village Restaurant




And here is the old Outrigger Bar at the Kona Inn.

Nice, a new kind of Tiki Boat, now that's what I call a drinking vessel!

Here is another mug of its kind created by Unkelfun as the grand prize winner of the Tiki Farm mug design contest last year.

Saw this cool model boat kit for the Kon Tiki.






Also found this book with neat illustrations of the Polynesian explorer outriggers.






Here is Henry Kaiser building the Ale Ale Kai in Hawaii.



This is an add for the Owens Tahitian boat.

Is your witco clipper in the "show us your witco" forum? If not could you put it there?

Thanks

Aloha Hodadhank,
Are these pictures from a family trip or something?
If so did you go to any other of the islands besides Maui?
I ask only in the interest of a possible vessel ID.

This Marquesan-carved canoe appeared on eBay four years ago. I think it went for over $600:























Here's a similar one on display at the Bali Hai in San Diego:

@ bigbrotiki: That is just too cute... (the game pieces)
There are some incredible things turning up in this thread actually, great idea.

Sabu, that boat is just spectacular. Beautiful piece, I wonder who bought it...?
