A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts

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.

Here we have installed the biax and foam and are vacuum bagging the hull half

The bag pulled and ready for the inner skin

Repeat 3 more times and we get to this stage
