Roller reefing for small cats
2 Replies

I thought I'd share some experience of setting up my Hitia 17 “Lilla My” with a roller reefing jib in case it is useful to others. I have certainly found it worked well for me over a summer of camp…Continue

Good luck with your project! I'm based in Finland - if your Baltic cruise gets this far (highly recommended!) then welcome to visit us and Godzilla, our Pahi 42.

If you're planning to trail-sail, Hitia 17 is probably a good bet - Tiki 21 is great, but that much bigger that you'll need a stronger tow car + it'll cost more on ferries. I do have Hitia 17 plans (I was planning to build one when I first came to Finland) and I think Hanneke said it could just about be car-topped....! I think for 2 adults it would be fine for camping.

Finnish archipeligo and Finnish lake district are both fantastic for sailing - we of course stick to the more open sea areas. But summer is very hot and almost 24 hours daylight, what more do you want?!

Good luck and hope to see you over here one day!

Hi Dan,

I saw that you have an Outboard on your Hita 17. I plan to fix an Outboard on my Hitia 17, but still not shure where and how. Can you please sent / Post some Photos how you solved the Problem. I have a 6HP Outboarder was the same like the 5HP.

Thanks and Greetings Oli
