Does anyone know if one hull of a Tiki 21 has the same curve on the inside surface as it does on the outside surface , i.e does the hull travel through the water equally . If that is true , it would seem to make that one hull the perfect candidate for the center hull of a trimarran . Any thoughts would be appreciated .
Yes, the same lines...
Very interesting idea.... !
I was working on my 21 hulls today. When you glance down the inverted hulls, they often appear a-symmetric. Displacement activities being what they are, I've found myself setting up to check.
They are symmetric as far as I can see. At the rear beam they form an equilateral triangle of approx. 90cm/90cm/90cm.
One hull could make the centre of a trimaran. Two will make a Tiki 21. But I like your thinking.
Thank you for your thoughts
Ha, an old Wharrram owner who sold his tiki and purchased a trimaran said he missed his wharram and having a trimaran was like having a mono hull with training wheels…….it would always rock from one side hull to the other.
