The older type Polynesian outrigger canoes are generally turned left or right by placing the blade of the paddle onto either side of the canoe to turn just aft, of your hip. The Steersman's Paddle blade is bigger and wider than the canoe paddler's blades.


I've paddled the Pailolo a couple times, and the open water canoe surfing can be impressive when the trades blow---- but nothing like this.

I reckon Kai could do Maui to Molokai under 2 hours on this thing-- hell probably could keep going and be to Diamond Head by happy hour...
