She was scraped plank by plank right down to her keel to rid her of the foul, brackish accretion of • seaweed, 'fossil and shell. The atoll people joined happily in the-work and then in the caulking although" there were not enough mauls and irons for them and they used coral chunks and coconut shells. This, Kaui explained to Naish, gave them « •chance to identify themselves •with the greatness of their »e«- igoing past when the famous ca- moes had set out from Tahiti for {Hawaii. The ship was a symbol ito be dtierished and maintained, ; and even the smallest children {understood that Naish had"made a gift to Mata'ota of one of the «hip'« wh»lebo»ts «nd two casks of prime oil. MaU'or* wu proud beyond tpeech. He sailed off alone in ithe boat, was font from dawn jto sunset, and was so entr»nced •with her that he made no attempt to give orders to his people [about the work they did on the Ithip. But Naish WM i*cr«tly ivery, much disturbed. ! The people kept no regular Iworkinrhours. They paddled ,or iswam out to the ihlp whenever, Ithey deilted. Women broutht •their children, and the old men came along to watch and the dogs swam with them and circled the ship barking after they were chased off the'hull. * The women, their '.parem hitched up above their knew, chatted among themnelvef, exchanged pieces of fruit, nursed their babiee. The men often aat and .liitened to the fonip and tooK part la (t and, wnealh* mood wai upon them, put dowa ihelr t«cta and went tot', ijtal. or"*e7 Mutt, «t* '»1«pt.'• the tun hear the merldia*, they all (topped work, lay dowm an/- BY ROBERT CARSt where on the hull and slept for a full two hours. Only Naish, Bothwick and Larned kept to what resembled ship's routine. Kaui sometimes maintained their . hours and at other times went "overside"-fish- ing and swimming with the men, to bring them back finally to work. The rest of the crew bad at the start, taken to the atoll style, j Those who had women rested I with them -durinf tl» midday period. Alfy never moved more than a few feet from his girl, and if she wished to go for a swim he followed her. He failed to respond to anything lik« an order that was given to him and his face became hard-drawn, bis eyes inimical as he received tt. "But the work will be done," Kaui told Naish. "You wait and see " "I'm wiitinc,- N«Uh »id. 'How long wiM thi» list, though?" 'Aue! Till tht ship to ready. 'A reasonable uuwcr," Naish said. . BUT hli rex»ttoe wu about to boil Into open 'rue and he scrambled along the hull from Kaui M it to inspect the work. , He pused Mr. Bothwick crouched' dripping with .iweat over a learn. Mr. Bothwick •truck his caulking iron severe, loud blows, He barely looked up at Naish and yet in the fiance w» ironic and quite detached curiosity. • , Bothwick would have you know, Naiah thought, that he flnds little to fancy In UuVHe'i pretty much right The lid's discipline hat fallen apart for sure.

Naish began to have hope. The difficult operation had been performed with no more than a few bruised fingers, a crushed toe, and the pace of the work was decidedly faster. Now tie atoll people worked with an excited elation. They took immense pleasure in diving down to examine the side already , repaired and ran their hands along the seams, patted and caressed the smooth planks. • • • THE women were, fascinated by Larned. He sat oh the beach with them around him and instructed them in the use of sail palm and needle. Under his direction, they patched the sails or sewed up new ones. Larned allowed the women to teep scrap* of old canvas, even showed the more deft how to fashion sun bonnets and bucket*. The men stopped on their way to the ship and stood around nervously nhufflini their feet, too envious to speak. Kiiri mocked the men. "At s«a, that's work for men," he said. "Her* it's for women. But the rigging of the ship will be yours. Only first we have to finish the hull." The men glared at Kaui and cursed him. But as he walked towards his canoe they came after him,-and that night by the light of torches they worked at the scraping until nearly dawn. "Don't keep them so hard at it," Naish told Kaui when the men had gone ashore. "They might lose their Interest altogether." "No, my people are strange," Kaui. said. "They're great be! levers in dreams. They we the ship now as done, ready for sea. It's to them like,a dream and they want that to come true. So' all of a sudden they're eager to work."
