A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
Hey! Has anyone built Tiki 30 style beams for their Tiki 26? I am keen to do so as they are easier to glass.
Weight would definitely have to be a consideration, the Tiki 21, 31, 38, 46 all use an unfaired "I" beam of a reasonably similar design which as far as I am aware requires a minimum of glassing in comparison to the Tiki 26 beams. But as I am planning a "Frankentiki" my requirements are slightly different...
I wonder why Wharrams went for faired beams on the Tiki 26, 30 and Pahi 26 but not on other designs. Either makes sense from a structural point of view.
Apologies for taking the thread off in another direction..
