"There is an article in The Guardian this morning and a long interview on Sky but no technical info other than that he was in a storm and lost his sail (sic) , but the sails are clearly visible. He said a hurricane was approaching so he clearly…"
"I found another video
As you said, the boat looks fine. I don't see damage in the rudders and the mast is up. Perhaps there is another reason, but I think he lost the electronics in the storm, and he…"
"Yes I agree it looks like a Tiki 30. The boat looked fine on the video, with the mast and a sail (rolled up).

It is on the news that a sailor and his dog were rescued after being stranded for three months in the Pacific Ocean, surviving on only raw fish and rainwater.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amcMwDSkJrwFrom the video, it seems to me that he was in a Tiki 30. It is not clear to me what exactly happened. There is an article that say "a storm struck damaging their vessel and electronics", but it is not explained the type of the damage.See More
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 email@example.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
