Gulf Coast working marinas?
1 Reply

I plan on moving my T38 from NM to the Arkansas river in Muskogee in a couple of weeks for assembly, then down the Arkansas to the Mississippi, probably through the Atchafalaya and into the gulf. The…Continue

Clearing out after the build...

Not sure if there's anyone else close enough to me in New Mexico for it to be practical but I'm clearing out after mostly finishing the build and have a few things left over. There's not much local…Continue

I'm in Albuquerque, NM and have found a guy who's selling approximately 200 new Sunpower flexible solar panels, 100W, US$130 each, complete with blocking diode on each panel. Seems a pretty decent…Continue

Axel replied to Olli Väänänen's discussion wheel steering
"Olli, Although they reference the plans sheet, I dot think it shows much of the rudder detail. But I will look at it again to be sure.  On the 38 the steering line runs around a drum with several turns for friction. The drum is connected…"

Gulf Coast working marinas?

I plan on moving my T38 from NM to the Arkansas river in Muskogee in a couple of weeks for assembly, then down the Arkansas to the Mississippi, probably through the Atchafalaya and into the gulf. The boat is not yet completely finished and I will need somewhere inexpensive (with power) to do the balance of the work. It might be a month to do the rigging and the few other things, though given the way building seems to work, probably longer.... And yes, I could stay in Muskogee as the marina I am…See More

Axel replied to Emil Gaigher's discussion Lifting Tiki 38 hull
"I can't say for sure if it would work or not Emil, but I think I remember reading in the T38 literature provided by Wharram that the beams and attachments were designed to be strong enough to suspend one hull from the other. If that's the…"

Axel replied to Axel's discussion Clearing out after the build...
"Not that I'm being overwhelmed with responses...but the table saw, the paint spray set and the boat shed are gone.  Forgot a few other things: 1. blakes lavak toilet with all the valves, hose and pump needed to set it up for a holding…"

"Hi Budget, I have lost the quote I got from you for T38 sails. Can you get me another quote please. I plan on getting the boat to the assembly marina at the end of September.  Thanks, Alex"

Axel replied to Robert Sheridan's discussion Using dyneema for rigging - warning
"Thanks Eric and Omar. Eric, I really like the resin deadeyes but I fear they would be more work than making them out of wood or aluminum. If I need 50 of them that would be the way to go! I suppose I should clarify that while I can make them out of…"

Axel replied to Robert Sheridan's discussion Using dyneema for rigging - warning
"I'm now ready to start making rigging pieces for my T38 and pondering the deadeyes.... the cost of buying them is prohibitive and so am thinking of different ways to make them. Since I don't have access to a lathe or machine tools, I have…"

Axel replied to Scott Burger's discussion tiki 38 with ensuite shower (How can it be done?)
"No problem at all. The master cabin has plenty of space. Make a solid bulkhead aft, between the master and the aft cabin and you'll have more than enough room. I don't remember the measurements from the stairs back to the bulkhead but you…"

Great pictures of your pod. Yes its heavy. With 6 guys (strong) I could manipulate it up and down without crane or loader.
Interesting the reverse thing, i was thinking doing the same and finally stuck to the plans.
Beautiful job.
