"Perhaps you can reuse the old holes of the screws. If you drill a wider and deeper hole, then you can fill it with thickened epoxy, and then you screw the new bulwarks on these holes. That is, you screw the screws in the thickened epoxy, not in the…"

"Yeah cheers to solid bulkheads! Interestingly the space under the cockpit is accessed by the standard wharram access plate with a screw down handle in the middle compressing a seal around the edge. These are great, when removed they make a whooshing…"

"Yes, it is very good. Note that Manu Lele is a Tama Moana and Tieman build it it with a full bulkhead in the middle of the hulls. I suppose a Tiki would be lower in the water, but still floating by the bow and stern bulkheads."

"It's amazing that one hull is literally split in two and the boat is still quite afloat. Wharram safety factor is unmatched. "

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
