Sabu,

Of all the times I have been to the Bali Hai, I never noticed that boat. Where is it hanging?

Found at a junk yard near my house:


The TAHITI boat:


Not as jet-age as the South Seas Samoan, but the logo is indeed cool:

Another overlooked Tiki boat, is the designs of James Wharram, he has created a whole series of Polynesian style catamarans, designed to be constructed by home builders. He is one of the main reasons catamaran boats have become popular with mainstream society. One of series is even called The Tiki!!!! He has been one of the carriers of the Tiki flame since the 1950's. Check his website out at:

Bigbro,

Nice Tahiti find in the junkyard!


Here is the schooner "Tiki" from the Adventures in Paradise TV show.

This pic is from a fan site for Aventures in Paradise with some good info on the history of the scooner.

Bleeep! The correct answer would have been: "On page 102 of the fabulous book TIKI MODERN."
