                                          KON TIKI

The raft Kon-Tiki was built as a copy of a prehistoric South American vessel.  Constructed of nine logs, a crew of six men sailed the raft from Callao in Peru on 28th of April 1947 and landed on the island of Raroia in Polynesia after 101 days.  This successful voyage of 4,300 miles proved that the islands in Polynesia were within the range of this type of prehistoric South American vessel. A documentary of the voyage won an Oscar in 1951 and the book about the expedition has been translated into more than 66 languages.
