"it seems that your melanesia plans differ from mine. the shape of the latter is other than your "banana-like" type (a long, straight rod that bends up in the extremities)."

"Hi Luis the Ama is build exactly according to the plans of James - 5 layers of wood, inside hollow. Maybe it looks different with the black colour. I´m happy with its weight, and this is I think, a question of the lightweight of the Abachi…"

"thanks boris! the shape of the ama you buit seems more friendly than the original wharram one. Mine, disregarding it's heavy, sinks more than wished. If possible, do you have the basic measures of it? tks. rds."

About me or us?
We, Tanja and me (and Paulina and Filipa - still swimming in Tanjas belly) are right now a quick growing family and quiet unexperienced in sailing. We´re restoring a Tiki 26, looking forward to sail around the mediterranean coasts, when our daughters will be able to join us. By then we´ll do coastal camping trips with tent/ Caravan and our new Hitia 17 or our Melanesia...
Looking to?
...and, of course we´re dreaming of a Tiki 38, blue water etc...and we´ll manage it one day! if not in this life, then maybe in the next one ; )

Hallo Hans,
danke für deinen Eintrag! Bin auch sehr gespannt auf das Segel! Glaubst du es macht Sinn ein Reff in das kleine Segel einzubauen? Wharram hat keins vorgesehen, betont aber auf der anderen Seite immer wieder, wie genial sich die Sprit Segel Variante für die Melanesia reeffen ließe.

Zum großen Tiki Kat: seit dem Bau der Melanesia und den paar Restaurationsarbeiten an unserer Tiki 26 hab ich einen höllen Respekt vor dem Bau eines großen Cats. Ich glaube, dass ich wirklich gut und präzise arbeite aber genau das ist das Problem. Ich denke, dass ich immer noch zu `modelbaumäßig´ arbeite und dadurch enorm viel `Zeit verbrauche´. Muss man sich beim Bau einer Tiki 46 vom Anspruch auf `topglatte Epoxy Oberflächen´ verabschieden, um das Projekt zu Ende zu bringen?

Ich ziehe meinen Hut vor dem was ihr geschafft habt und wünsche euch weiterhin viele, viele unvergessliche Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen!
LG Boris

Hi Boris,

habe gesehen, dass Du bei Deiner Hitia feste Cockpitluken gemacht hast. Mir gefallen die aus dem Plan auch nicht. Kannst Du mir einen Tipp geben, auf was man achten muss? Wie befestigst Du Deine, damit sie nicht "davonfliegen"?

Gruß

Martin
