Waka hourua ki Te Moananui-a-Kiwa

Nō te tāpiritanga atu o te rā ki ngā waka o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa ka kaha ake, ka tere ake tō rātou rere, tere ake i ngā waka mau hoe anake. E rua ngā takere o ēnei waka; koinei te take ka tau pai te waka i runga i te wai. Ko tēnei pikitia e whakaatu ana i tētahi waka hourua (tohu ‘C’). Nā Abel Tasman tēnei pikitia o tētahi waka hourua i tā i Tongatapu i te tau 1643.
