Sailing an Outrigger Canoe in Hawaii

I've always wanted to do this:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sourc...ejGAJQ&cad=rja

I did it. I bought tickets to go to Hawaii in January. I really would like to crew one of these boats while I'm there. Not the "traditional" small catamarans that go out for tours on some islands, but the true, 40' OC's that have been known to hit 20 knots from time to time. I don't need to do the molokai or anything, some leisurely coastal cruising will suffice.

Is this possible, especially since I'm not a member of any OC clubs? Can I just show up and see if anyone needs crew? Does anyone have any recommendations for which island to do this on, or which club? I built and sail a small outrigger canoe here in New Jersey, and so have some experience with the type, if that means anything.
