In 1986 French Polynesia issued two stamps which shows us a pirogue under construction.
By digging around on the internet I found a few photos and I think the pirogue under construction is the HOKULE’A. built-in 1975: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C5%8Dk%C5%ABle%CA%BBa

More on the HOKULE’A is given: http://monvr.pf/regard-du-chroniqueur-m ... lynesiens/
