Picked up a couple of nifty Tiki boat menus from the American Hawaii Cruise Lines.

The artwork is by famous Hawaiian artist is Herb Kane.

This first one is the War Canoe of Tahitian King Pomare I.


Here is the interesting story on the back of the menu.


The next one is a Marquesan canoe.

The canoe story.

I posted this before way back when in Tiki Finds but it fits here as well. A huge print about five feet long. Coconut mug for size comparison.

Looks killer in the mood lighting.

These awesome tikis are on the Honolulu Craigslist right now.










Obviously off of some boat / catamaran. Anyone know which one? At $11,500 for the pair, they will stay on Craigslist for quite a while...

I wonder if any of the Tiki Central carvers has attempted to construct a traditional outrigger canoe? I've not much experience at carving, but it sounds like a fun project. It would be the only one like it on the little Indiana lake where I have my summer cottage! Mmmm... I'll bet someone's got some plans on line...

I was looking at these yesterday and was wondering what boat tiki's of this size might have been mounted on..
Captain Bean's Dinner Cruise..

The boat was sold and the new owner is selling the above tiki's..
I'd love to have these out on my lanai

New in 2005.
"Sure to prove a hit with visitors is Kontiki, a spinning and swinging boat ride that recreates the experience of riding the high seas without leaving dry land! The ride was chosen for its unique motion that is unlike anything else currently at the Park thus giving visitors a new experience."




Paultons Park is a family theme park situated in the village of Ower near Romsey in Hampshire, England. The name is derived from the former Paultons Estate, on which the Park is situated. There has been a large investment over the last few years, which has seen the park transform from a small local park, to a major attraction aimed at family audiences. Originally the park was a country park and bird garden. Paultons now has over 50 family rides and attractions and still keeps a number of animals, including Meerkats, Penguins, South African Crowned Cranes, Touracos, and over 80 different species of exotic birds. The park has three roller coasters and two water rides. The park Opened 17 May 1983.

I don't know what ever happened, but
there was a plan.
