You will find Beat and Beatriz out in the Pacific at the moment, enjoying life on Aluna. She's a crab-claw rigged T38 and has proven quite good. My T38 on the other hand is still in the building shed. Life seems to have a way of interrupting the best laid plans from time to time. I have almost finished but for other reasons it's going to be a couple of years before we can go anywhere anyway. So she sits, not forgotten but not yet achieving her destiny.

Hi Tom! Our tiki 38 "marabu" is in carriacou (north of grenada) .we will sail in the west indies again this spring ant then bring back the boat to europe. we wish all the best and we are still dreaming about the lagoon from aitutaki wich is just perfect for a boat like the tiki 38 daniel

My Tiki 38 Mouzzer is in the Chesapeake Bay. Launched in June of 2008, we have been sailing her in the bay and plan to retire in a couple of years and go cruising, initially on the East coast of the US. We learn a little bit more each time we go out about how to sail her, and how to arrange things onboard for convenience and function. I am still working on the interior, so we are not quite done. I don't think there are any pictures of the boat on this site; I keep meaning to uplaod some, but it's pretty much the generic T38, the exceptions being extended coachroofs on the hulls and a different cockpit design. Coming north after the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner race this year, we met a southbound T38 Al Raso, built by Martin Huivon in Canada. They had just launched and he, his wife, and their two teenage children were heading south to go cruising. I think they are meeting up with Ann and Neville in Florida for the Wharram meet before heading into the Caribbean. It was a shock of sorts to see another T38 sailing toward us in the middle of the bay, but the boat looked good even heavily loaded.

hi ron,
it would be great if you can send pics of your "different cockpit design".

Mine is on the dry in New Jersey US. I just finished her and plan to sail across the atlantic next spring and bring her in Mediterranee for a while.

That will be a good test.

Daniel (Marabu),

when are you planning to sail back to Europe? What route are you planning to take? We will be spending the winter sailing in the Bahamas and Cuba but next spring, we are going to Europe. We will go either via Bermuda or from the Chesapeake Bay. Jacques Pierret is also planning to go from New Jersey. It would be awesome to have 3 Tiki 38 going across together.
