two sheets of ply and a fishing rod
James and Hanneke have their own Melanesia
I was lucky enough to be taken out for a spin on it a few years ago at one of their summer Huis.
The JWD Melanesia
An example of the kind of craft that inspired the Melanesia design - quietly sitting on a beach in Goa, India.
Such a joy to see such a pure and undiluted piece of maritime history sitting on a beach in Goa - the detail to be found on this craft is mind blowing, it would sit well in Western World maritime museum, but she's more at home sitting on the sand awaiting her next call of duty . . .
So much learned . . .
. . . and so much knowledge abandoned
Check out these paddles!
I'll be making a pair of these as soon as I can get my hands on some locally grown bamboo . . .
