Andrés replied to Aneblanc's discussion What is the flare angle on a Tiki 26?
"In my boat is 60 degrees, a measure taken at 180 cm from the vertical of the bow, or at 80 cm from the beginning of the keel. It is very difficult to me to make a measure in the middle of the boat, but it seems to be the same 60 degrees."

Andrés replied to Gary Prost's discussion How long to get a Tiki 26 from trailer to sailing?
"The only time that I change a lashing it took me half an hour or more to make it tight (and latter I have to tighten it more). It was one of the inner lashings, the exterior ones may be easier to tight. But if with practise it takes you 15 minutes,…"

Andrés replied to Ian Bamsey's discussion Interesting Wharram Blog
"Perhaps it is worth observing that Marijke de Boer is a sister or Hanneke, so I think she and ther husband knows a lot about Wharrams. Marijke has many interesting videos in youtube, including one on the Amatasi."

Hi Andrés,
I'm in Rio de Janeiro and I have already bought the Tiki26 building plan. I saw the tend you have on your Tiki and I would like to know if the design cames in the Wharram package or if it is your creation. As I have written at TIKI 26 Group I need a very good sun protection in my future boat. I wonder if I can add some lenght to the mast so I can make a "bimini" like a roof as I saw on a picture of a Tiki 30. If for any chance you will come to Rio, please let me know. My e-mail is valedefreitas@hotmail.com. Have a nice day, Alexandre

Dear Andres, We have sent you an email but just in case you do not get it we are John and Kat from Australia, members of the PCA and we are building a 42' Pahi due to launch in about a year. We will be in Montevideo on Friday 28th January just for the day. If you are going to be in the area and would be happy to meet with us to discuss Wharram building and owning, we would enjoy it very much. Please let us know as soon as possible.
John and Kat
