Ulua, a great-looking sailing outrigger canoe from New Zealand

Outrigger canoe Ulua

Ulua is a lovely sailing outrigger canoe from New Zealand (a nice fit, given that NZ is the southern tip of the Polynesian Triangle). She has excellent authentic features, especially at the ends. The rig also evokes her heritage, though I am curious about how well it performs. She was designed by Gary Dierking, who will provide plans for her and a few other related designs (some other OCs and some proas). All are wonderful interpretations of some of the greatest adventure craft of all time. Kudos.
