Galley Wench Tales

Exploring the world through the people we meet
and the food they eat.

Boat in local dock near Fare, Huahine, French Polynesia.

Wayne noticed in French Polynesia the local motor boats don’t have steering wheels.  Instead they use more of a joystick.

We’ve not seen this before in our travels and wonder if it will remain unique to French Polynesia.

Typical seating area for Polynesian motor boats
with joystick steering.

By the time this posts we expect to be in Maupiti, 30 miles outside Bora Bora French Polynesia. Then it’s on to Tonga with a stop in American Samoa and potentially Cook’s Suwarrow on the way. Will set several catch-up blog posts to run while we’re on passage, internet permitting.
