Leith Duncan graduated M.A. at the University of Auckland and later taught at Monash University, Melbourne where he also studied the politics of urban Aboriginal protest. He developed an interest in Polynesian navigation, assembled a kind of Polynesian catamaran and sailed solo up the Australian coast, and back across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand, using both modern and indigenous Polynesian techniques of navigation. Since then he has studied both water recreation and commercial fishing in the Hauraki Gulf, the latter of which led to his working as a deckhand. Currently he is safely back on shore working up the data.
