Hi Hans,

what glue joints do you exactly mean? I'll try to explain the setp: the foot will be inserted into the mast and fastened with sikaflex and screws; the mast then stands on the maststep on a piece of rubber. The maststep is glued/screwed to the short longitudinal beam. And finally the short longitudinal beam lies on the crossbeams on rubber and inside locating blocks (not mounted on this picture).

What do you think about that?

Cheers Wolf

Hi Rogerio,

you're correct, mast diameter is 5" or 125mm, and yes she will sport a wing sail rig. Mainsail is from the Tiki 8m and a matching Jibsail to get approx. 28sqm sailarea (same as original cutter-rig).
