The "L" on the bottom and on the inside bottom are inspired by the large red letter "L" on the hillside behind the town of Lahaina. Maui, Hawaii. Inscribed on the bottom is "Maui Strong" to support the people of Lahaina. 100% of the proceeds the sale of the vessel will be donated to the Maui Relief.
