I have sailed my T 38 about a year now and was wondering if you would share your sailing method with this rig . When going to windward do you have the  foremain sheeted into the centre line and the…Continue

wharram firepit

I love the well area forward of the pod on my T38. Its a natural gathering area and have often thought if I was anchored off one bow the smoke and embers from a firepit would head diagonally aft…Continue

"Hi Brett, my main just has a single purchase halyard which makes it a little heavy to raise but a much shorter halyard, I think ballbearing cars on the main luff would make a big difference, although using the winch to get the main up is not…"

"Hi Dave I think the head sail as per plan is a working sail. Yes wouldn't be hard to rig up a little jib further out. I notice on a few of the t 38, they have an alloy beam right forward and this has the headsail attached to it. This takes the…"

Tiki 38 headsail

Been wondering whether it is better to have the tack of the sail down as low as poss or as high as poss. I think it is better to keep it low to give more of a" slot" between the foremain and headsail or have I got this wrong. I like the idea of bringing a little more sail area forward too to help with sail balance for windvane selfsteering....thoughts?cheers BrettSee More

Brett Parker replied to Jay J Hunt's discussion cost of building a Tiki 38
"Can't give materials cost but yes you can do the lashing on your own. A block and tackle is a help plus I have stainless steel caps over the top of each beam with an oak wedge for further tightening. Good system."

Brett Parker replied to dave tomlinson's discussion tiki 38 weight and draught
"Hi Dave The draft on my t 38 is more like 930mm. Yours looks to be sitting about the same as mine. I think my boat is definitely heavier than the plan weights but she still sails fine. I once sailed back from GT Barrier Is. and in 20 gusting …"

Hi Brett! How things? Time we all catch up- all I can bring this time round is a 12ft tinny, but the Wharram dream is alive and well- just slightly out of reach right now.

Keep in touch
