A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
This weekend I was on a camping trip with my tiki 21 and 4 friends.
5 Guys with camping gear, food, beer, firewood and so on.
400+ kg persons and at least 200kg equipment - so a little overloaded :)
when my son and I go sailing we usually have about 10 cm of bottom paint showing, but this trip we were below the waterline.
First day was a bit rough. A storm had crossed Denmark the day before, and there was still some wind and a lot off current, but the boat behaved just fine.
Second day was nice, and when we were about to leave the campsite, we met a guy with a drone. He took some footage of us when we sailed away, and have just uploaded a small video to youtube.
So nice to see the boat from above - a dream come true :)
You can see the raised outboard sometimes dragging in the water - it usually dont :)
What nice boats the Tikis are! Wonderful landscape but a little bit cold up there in the north ;-)

Despite of all, she sails so beautifully. Thanks for sharing the video. It's really nice to watch! :-)
I have wondered how much lighter Tiki 21 would sail if the deck between the hulls was replaced with a net trampoline.
A very nice T21, thanks for sharing the footage.
With respect to the question of Timo, Cooking Fat, the old T21 of Rory McDougall, has this type of deck
