My friend Ryan came into a small inheritance and has been spending it on some silly things.
For example, he purchased a Hawaiian sailing canoe and shipped it over from Oahu. Kind of nuts,
especially since he has almost no experience with them, but what the hey, I'll play along.
I thought I didn't know much, but I have assembled and paddled outriggers in Tahiti, so I had
some clue and ended up fastening the amas.
I also managed to convince them to paddle it first, rather than hoist the sail with the wind
blowing straight offshore at fifteen knots. THAT would have been interesting.
