Duncan Clausen replied to Ann and Neville Clement's discussion Saving KAVENGA
"Hi Ralph I am sad to see what has happened to your beautiful boat. Several years ago "Inkosinathi' the Tiki 30 that I built was rammed by a 30 ton power boat in Durban Harbour (there was no one on the bridge at the time!) and the port…"

Duncan Clausen replied to Rogerio Martin's discussion Trailer for Tiki 30 in the group TIKI 30
"Hi Roger I moved the hulls around my yard using a 4 wheeled trolly one at a time and the hulls need to be supported by a couple of men. I assembled the boat completely including stepping the mast before I launched her.  I used the 2 wheel…"

"Hey Paul Remember a boat is only ever 99% finished! Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year! Cheers Duncan"

Duncan Clausen replied to Rogerio Martin's discussion Trailer for Tiki 30 in the group TIKI 30
"Hi Roger - Merry Christmas To move my T30 hulls I used a simple trollie I had made up for my very heavy oil cooled welder. It consisted of a square frame 400x400mm (approx) welded from 25x25x5mm angle (mild steel) with M12x100mm bolts with heads…"

Duncan Clausen replied to Budget Boater's discussion Wharram Building Educational Program
"I think what you are offering is a great idea. I was fortunate enough to have some experienced builders show me some of the tricks of the trade before I started building 'Inkosinati' This start really helped me and the continued support…"

Duncan Clausen commented on Budget Boater's group TIKI 26
"Hi Paul! Good luck with your new mast. Check out Scott Williams Blog on how he made his mast. He made it in 2 halves on a custom 26' long table and a bucket load of clamps. This gave him more control of the glueing and the clamping forces. He…"

Duncan Clausen replied to Rogerio Martin's discussion Tiki 30 Half Pod in the group TIKI 30
"Hi Rogerio, an alternative would be to do what I did, which was to add cabin tops to the forward cabins. Then one can be a captain's cabin/single bunk and the other a head. This leaves a nice clear cockpit. I have a few photos on my page.…"

Duncan Clausen replied to Ralf's discussion T30 centre and aft beams in the group TIKI 30
"Hi Ralf, this should be no problem, you might consider making a 9 mm web to fit flush in the end of the beam and then glue the end cap to this especially if you are planning on using rope lashings instead of the webbing straps as per plan. Duncan"

Duncan Clausen replied to paul anderson's discussion thoughts on mast extention
"Hi Paul, on my t30 the mast was a little longer, but we normally sail with the sail in the as designed position. It is nice thought to have the option of raising the sail higher up the mast - this is the beauty of the rig design. Common sense needs…"

Duncan Clausen commented on Budget Boater's group TIKI 30
"Thanks David. That is exactly what I did - I put a head in the starboard fore cabin. This arrangement works really well, especially for day sails, where not all of the crew are into the 'bucket & chuck it' routine."

Duncan Clausen commented on Budget Boater's group TIKI 30
"Hi Justin, I sold my T30 in South Africa, and now I am living in New Zealand. The decision to build a T26 was an accidental one, in that I was  able to buy an unused set of T26 plans cheap. Though all said, I have just returned from SA and had…"
Jul 24, 2011
Duncan Clausen commented on Budget Boater's group TIKI 30
"Hi Justin, I added a coach roof to the fore cabin (see my photos), and thus created a more usable single bunk. I would not move the rear beam aft, but you could make a cutout in bulkhead #6 as shown as an option for bulkhead #3. This is how JWD…"

Duncan Clausen replied to Alexandre Ferreira's discussion Bimini in a Tiki 26 in the group TIKI 26
"Hi guys! Just a thought on making the mast longer. All one really needs to do is add an extension at the mast head so as one can raise the peaking halyard. This will allow the gaff (and hence the main sail) to be raised a little higher. The rest of…"

Duncan Clausen replied to Russell and Janet Puryear's discussion Cockpit Drains in the group TIKI 26
"Hi Russel, I would cut the drain slots (30 X 100 mm) on the cockpit sides near the back and above the fillet between the side and the floor (say 10 mm above the floor). This way you are less lightly to lose your car keys etc. but you may need to…"

Al Richardson replied to Duncan Clausen's discussion Tiki 30 style beams in the group TIKI 26
"Hi Duncan, Weight would definitely have to be a consideration, the Tiki 21, 31, 38, 46 all use an unfaired "I" beam of a reasonably similar design which as far as I am aware requires a minimum of glassing in comparison to the Tiki 26…"
