built Tehini when I was teenager, currently thinking of building pahi 63
Country, City, and State?
Tamarindo Costa Rica - Orange County California
About me or us?
Helped build Tehini early 70's - lived aboard for a decade or so. Sailed most of Pacific. Lived on Catalina Island last 15 years and now building home in Costa Rica, would like to build Wharrams for pleasure and sale.
Have custom home project in Costa Rica that will help me afford my next boat. Once home is built, will begin construction of tiki or pahi. Then will probably just day sail to surf spots around Panama to Nicaragua.
I`ve received your message, thx ... yes I hope to get going, somehow. Costa Rica seems a good location for building a boat. What about marine plywood and epoxy available right now ? I was just looking at the price lists of some dealers over here in Germany ... ooufff.
hi bim, the 'twisted ladder is the main companionway in the port hull i have made fore & aft sliding hatches so to make it easier to fi folding dodgers on them. i see you have a lot of experience sailing a tehini , i am going to be rigging this boat with a tehini cutter rig style sail plan will see how it goes
