Hey Dave,

Before ordering my wingsails, I am trying to get feedback from people who really used them. I know you have been doing that for a while, could you tell me about it, how they work, problems if there are?

I have right now two possibilities:
1. a classic setup with lashing around the masts
2. the real wingsail

I want to decide soon, but my heart goes to the wingsail (with booms though) as I think it really belongs to the design. I have two feedbacks from Ann/Neville T46 and Ron Hall T38 who say that the wingsail is a pain to handle because it does not slide easy enough on the masts. What is your opinion about it?

Thanks

Jacques

Ah,

Thanks a lot Dave, very precious information. I will go for it. Also, the masthead design seems to be important too (I have aluminum masts).

Hi Dave,
I have just a short comment. I used to follow your build on the multihull forum and now I just read your post on Neil Hawkesford's blog about preparing to transit the Panama Canal. As a builder just starting a Tiki 46, your example is inspiring. I looked back at your photo of a pile of plywood and lumber and then your canal post and realized it is doable. Thanks.

Hi Dave,
I'll be building a Tiki 38 soon and I wanted to ask you if you your boat is constructed like "Two Ticks"? I really like the lines of the coach roofs . Is that modification as easy as it looks? It appears to be just additional stringers up high in the hulls?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Bob

Dear Dave,
We are John and Kat from Australia, members of the PCA and we are building a 42' Pahi due to launch in about a year. We will be in Cape Town on 4/5 February and Durban on 7th February. If you are going to be in the area and would be happy to meet with us to discuss Wharram building and owning, we would enjoy it very much. Please let us know as soon as possible.
Regards
John and Kat
