friends of mine have built a pool on the mainland edge of the coral at Pangona. You can see the trench in the ocean in front of there property where a 1.5m moray eel likes to hang out. We snorkel there a lot and have him observe us whilst we look for Nemo.....
Used to transport between the close islands, this "banana boat" as the locals call them, was on the return leg between Pele island and the mainland (Efate), a distance of about 3-4km. Very reliable and economic to run, they take about 8 passengers with some small cargo only.
A lot of people have asked how it works in direct emails so here is a shot of the outside of a Copra Dryer. Basically heat the beams underneath with wood fires and its takes all day to dry a batch. This is a photo taken from outside and you can see the wood bundles beside the fire hatches.
