Mahalo to Andy Day, originally from Maine, for driving from his current home in New Jersey on his birthday to see Hōkūleʻa in Haverstraw, New York. He has been a friend of one of the original voyagers since 1976, Dr. Ben Young. He shared with us some of the mementos that Ben gave him. Nakua, whose great grandfather was on the 1976 voyage, felt especially blessed to make a connection in a place like Haverstraw! Mahalo again, Andy, and everyone else who came out to see us at Haverstraw Marina.
