Wharram Builders and Friends

A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts

Hi everyone, I am the proud new owner of an old Tiki 26 which needs a new fore-stay for the mast.  (The mast is down, having fallen overwinter on the mooring) .  I don't have the original plans and I need the dimensions of the fore-stay that I need to buy.  Please would you help, if you know this information?  I need: length, gauge (thickness) and some idea of which fittings to put on the ends.  

Secondly, I hope to fit some kind of roller-furling for the jib (home-made?)  Any comments from you experienced Tiki sailors would be very gratefully received.

As you can guess, I'm a newbie!  But very excited to be here and looking forward to meeting members of this group one day, hopefully on the water.
