knudsenmsa@yahoo.com (balsa tangaroa 1965)(raft tangaroa 1965)
Coffer 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 Richtack
Peruvian 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 conserved.(knudsen mario)
