We started another Tiki 8m in late Sept. Here are pics of the hulls in construction. We use vinylester resin, biaxial fiberglass and Divinycell foam. This is a layer of Chopped strand mat. It is resin rich and helps to avoid print -thru and water permeability.
Impressive stuff !
Looks awesome, David
solid fiberglass in-layed in way of the beam end cleats
Beams getting flanges. The beam in the foreground has extra glass and centerline webs inside to spread mast loading.
Beams in fairing.
We modified our deck mold in way of the beam blocks. We replaced the existing beam blocks with round pads of fiberglass. We are using cast nylon for the blocks. The cast nylon glues with epoxy, is self lubricating and very, very strong.
Far from my amateur work. Great job.
I like that nylon setup. No rotting wood
Aft net beam chocks and beam lashing cleats
Beam end cleats and fore and aft mooring cleats. note the epoxy over bore on the bolt holes
