While we?re waiting for the logs?

Alle i arbeid på byggeplassen

The balsa logs have been delayed for almost two weeks, but there are still lots of things to be done while waiting. Our building site is now established at the SIMA shipyard of the Peruvian Navy, and we live comfortable and safe at the Naval Academy in La Punta Callao. The Peruvian Navy is extremely helpful to us!

 
1400 m of sisal rope (for lack of hemp which has proved impossible to get here) has been purchased, and we have started making the more than 100 eye splices for connecting the logs. The making of “Little Tangaroa”, now displayed at the Kon-Tiki Museum, provided us with experiences that really come in handy. Four Norwegian carpentry students, all trained within this school project, are here for a month to help building the raft. But even with good work hands, time is running fast.

   
In a few days’ time we hope to have the main logs present, and then all other preparations ought to be done in order to make the most of the remaining building period. In addition to working on the ropes, we have found the mast materials we plan to use, and these are now being processed in a 14 m long turning lathe in SIMA. We have purchased all the things needed for the building process that wasn’t already brought from Norway, and the only thing we still need are waterproof boxes and reed mats….And our logs and containers, of course…

misters, I'm peruvian. I'd like to tell you that there's already an expediton named tangaroa in 1965, the journey was from Peru to Fakarava's island (Polinesia). The crew is still alive and tehy're peruvian. I think you shuold communicate to the crew taht you're using their name and as a matter of respect you should request them to use the name of TANGAROA and if they allow you you should use the name TANGAROA II. I'll try my best to let the world about the first expedition TANGAROA I.

Con mis compañeros de travesía nos impusieron problemas que no tuvieron las anteriores balsas que partieron del Callao a la Polinesia.La negativa de la capitania de puerto , me obligo a mantener la "TANGAROA" anclada y encharcada en la poza del Yatch Club Peruano del Callao, por tres largos meses.En el mes de Julio - pleno invierno - obtuve el permiso. Gracias al ruido ensordecedor producido por las sirenas de los barcos y demás embarcaciones acoderados en el puerto, la "TANGAROA" parte a la Polinesia a las 11 am del 26 de Julio de 1965. Fue halada de la poza del Yatch ClubLa balsa peruana "TANGAROA" con su tripulación peruana atravesó el Océano Pacifico en 115 días, de los cuales 18 días los empleamos en pasar Tuamotu siendo la única balsa que ha logrado atravesar archipielago peligroso archipiélago de la Polinesia Francesa por sus propios medios.

tangaroa65@yahoo.esCoffer was constructed by Carlos Caravedo, that was its motor and head of expedition. 8 trunks (tucos) longitudinal and 5 cross-sectional ones of raft wood were used altogether, of the forest of Ecuador, by the subscribed one, with aid of Mr. Guillermo Negrete, Ecuadorian. It does not use trunks male type, but FEMALE, by of correct flotation although of smaller duration. The Peruvian crew I consist of:· Carlos Caravedo Arca (Head of expedition)· Jaime Toledo Gongora· Jose Mataush RichtackPeruvian raft "TANGAROA" use a candle of 6 xs 4 meters but another small one of mizzen. I found serious vicissitudes to construct the raft; great difficulties to obtain the game. I had to construct to the "SINGLE TANGAROA" in a turn of the called place "the brave sea" in the Callao. Being the "TANGAROA" in well equipped flotation and - being the month of April - and ready, the exit was prevented me. With my companions of passage they imposed problems to us that did not have the previous rafts that left from the Callao for Polynesia. The refusal of capitania of port, I commit myself to maintain the "TANGAROA" anchored and encharcada in poza del Yatch Peruvian Club del Callao, for three long months. In the month of Julio - total winter - I obtained the permission. Thanks to the deafening noise produced by the sirens of the boats and other boats let go the aft mooring lines in the port, the "TANGAROA" leaves to 11 Polynesia to a.m. of the 26 of Julio of 1965. Peruvian raft "TANGAROA" with its Peruvian crew was hauled of poza of the Yatch Club crossed the Pacifico Ocean in 115 days, of which 18 days we used them in passing Tuamotu being the only raft that has managed to cross archipielago dangerous archipelago of French Polynesia by its own means. The 18 of November the Fakarava island like full stop of our navigation. Fakarava is then, the island of the "TANGAROA", place in where it is conservedpersonal commentaries:mario knudsenThis in sima callao an expedition Norwegian which I do not have but that affinity; By the interesting thing of the aim that they persecute but by I to be of descendants Norwegian But I am first of all Peruvian and it cannot be that an expedition has same name that another one and with greater reason, if he is only Peruvian the existing one (we document to our children,)(sea reason for pride) it would suppose confusion if such-and-such is Norwegian or if the two are it,,,,,,,....
