A Porirua man's promise to his dying grandmother has been playing on his conscience for nearly 15 years.

In 2003 John Misky vowed to his Tokelauan grandmother that he would build a traditional ocean going vaka and sail it between Auckland and Wellington to raise money for the Tokelauan bible translation project.

Dominic Godfrey went to visit him in Porirua to find out about the project.
