Do we make mistakes?

Sure we do – but we try to keep safety our #1 priority

slide55

Radio Communications: both canoe and escort boat

VHF base station and handheld radios to communicate with each other, other vessels, ports, etc.

HF (single sideband) to communicate with Hawai’i, Guam, etc.

Cell phones when close to shore.

slide56

Electronic Communications:

both canoe and escort boat

Laptop computer + Satellite phone =

Email service for weather forecasts, website updates, admin and logistics

Escort boat has radar.

Hokule’a uses radar reflector.

slide57

Emails from Hans Rosendal, 35-year Nat’l Weather Svc veteran - amazing accuracy.

  • Nainoa follows computer models and NOAA products and warns of dangers by email or HF radio contacts.

Weather Forecasts

slide60

Since 1978, PVS has not, and will not, voyage without an escort vessel.

Escort’s first priority is SAFETY, especially man overboard situations.

slide62

Towing – we hate it! We’re only happy when sailing, but:

    • into/out of harbors/marinas/channels
    • strict schedule demands plus adverse/no wind
    • away from danger (weather/reef/lee shore)
slide63

When responsible for two canoes,

used Vessel Tracking System.

Will use on World-Wide Voyage.
