The islanders of Polynesia often traveled on huge rafts called crab claws, named after the distinctive shape of the sail. There is evidence these could grow as big as a frigate, or even a ship of the line.

Just a little build. I don't really like the sails, but I think I quite like it overall. C and C appreciated.

That is a nice raft. Like me, you probably enjoyed Walt Disney's Moana. The masts look similar. The sail looks like after a storm. Maybe you could improve the sail?

looks great! I love the boat! And for the crab-sail, the solution for the spars is pretty nice too.

Thanks!

I am plannig to build something similar, too. First I wanted to buy some "Moana" sets for the sails but probably I should go for some self made, too :)
