Wharram Builders and Friends

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 :)

wow ... carbon mast sound good. Is it a tube or a real mast?

I rebuilt my platforms as they were rotten. I built a bigger engine box to take a fuel tank and lower my Honda 5 long shaft to prevent cavitation. My platforms are made from 6mm ply laminated to 12mm in places. I can lift my central platform easily and suspect it weighs perhaps 20kg. The sides are less than 10kg.

I guess its a tube. I was told it used to be a spar on an old Americas cup boat. its surprisingly light.

I think you are right that the sides pieces are less than 10 kg. My central platform is also built a bit bigger than per plan. It holds fuel tank, double gas burner + tank, pots and pans etc.
