design & building
I know Tarcisio, but the Tahiti have 21' and sail with paddles as rudders. Is too much primitive for me. I bought a melanesia plans, becouse I have a lot of plys with 40 cm width thats remains of a good buy for the tiki 30.

mast: crabclaw (with bamboo) or wingsail (with aluminum mast)
what do you think about?
