"The Tiki 28 (a predecessor of the Tiki 30) was designed with a pod that had a pop-up roof and beams with rigid connections. It was built by JWD as a completed boat and there were no plans for amateur construction. I think they only built 3 or 4…"
"The T30 Arin was built by Nick Harris in England in 2000, and it was sailed singlehanded to the Caribean.
If I remember well, the boat was sold to someone from the United States who disposed the pod, so it does not exists anymore.

"I suppose the reason is that the design by JWD has this shape.One benefit is that you can see (more or less) forward trough the canal between the pod and the cabin and have less windage.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
