Looking for news of the life of Tangaroa Mk I, Tolfea

Tolfea is a Tangaroa Mark1 that I built as my first major boat project in 1979. After living aboard in the Pacific Nortwest for four years with wife and daughter, we moved onto a larger Wharram based design and sold Tolfea. She stayed mostly in the Puget Sound area with trips north as far as Alaska and Haida Gwai. There is a YouTube of one trip by Nala Walla.
I don't know most of her other stories but came across her in the work yard at Port Townsend this September abandoned and impounded. I now own her again and am well along on a refit. The hulls and beams are in amazing condition requiring little. New bulwarks are underway. Many little details are required of course as well as a new mast and sails and motor and gear. If anyone can fill in her stories that would be welcome as there was no log aboard. The name is derived from Tolkien, meaning Isle of Spirit in high elvish. It is coming along well and should be Sailing this Spring. Birch Gerke

Ariki 'Piggy' sails again

Thought people might be interested to know that 'Piggy', the Ariki famous as the protagonist of the "Stick to the Plans" cautionary tale published on your website a few years back, has set sail on another long cruise. This time, Tom Hembroff is sailing with his daughter and one of his sons. They have a blog:

I don't know if their plans include going all the way around, but they do hope to be in New Zealand by November. Since the first voyage of Piggy was more than 30 years ago, I think this might be a record. At the very least, it's a tribute to a great design (she's an Ariki) and excellent boat maintenance.

All the best,
Mary Wilson

Tiny Islands – Through Western Micronesia

 The many small atolls like Kapingamarangi which I’ve visited before have inspired me. They are rings of coral surrounding lagoons 2 – 20 miles across. the islands started as sand spits on the ring of coral reef, but were inhabited by islanders 1000 – 2000 years ago who brought plants and animals and created lovely exotic manmade environments.

They are simple, clear, bright and vividly colorful, in short – paradisiacal, but I’d never stayed at one for more than a month and wanted to in order to get to know the people and life better. This is what I did at Kapinga, where I stayed from November 2013 until April 2014, with the 200 some Polynesian inhabitants, out of the range of TV, motorized transportation, the internet and even radio other than shortwave, although there were difficulties.
