After almost four decades under US administration as the easternmost part of the UN Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands attained independence in 1986 under a Compact of Free Association. Compensation claims continue as a result of US nuclear testing on some of the atolls between 1947 and 1962.

And as the Republic of the Marshall Islands is 99 per cent water, it’s not surprising that its people are skilled boat-builders and sailors." - illustrated - from ABC/Cinemedia - http://www.abc.net.au/ra/pacific/people/outriggers.htm
