Outrigger Sailing Canoe Plans
by Gary Dierking

I got to visit Gary Dierking recently in his Coromandel, New Zealand home. I found him to be a quiet and unassuming man who has a wealth of real world knowledge of, and a passion for, the outrigger canoes he designs and builds. He took me for a sail in one and I was impressed with both the function of the boat and his handling of it. I got the sense that if I were going to build a polynesian style boat - who would not want one? - I would want Gary's expertise guiding me.
