one wall up and a break till the coolth of the morning.

well now a wall is up and it sure is a big boy. to get the width we had to go nearly twenty feet high. all in all it's not to bad we did the hard part today. tomorrow we get up at 0500 and do some work while it's cool. in case anyone wonders when you are committed to building a boat; I would say the moment you build a shed larger than your house by three times ;)See More

Bow shed getting assembled

to tell the truth i never thought it would get here. I built the stem walls and we are making bows, tomorrow we will raise the stove shop office part of the shed. huzza! Huzza! HUZZA!!!! 24'X80'  is not a small space 9 feet at the pitch is not a short space but it will allow for the things to go on that need to happen. I will get some pictures tomorrow as we put the first part up and put the ply on it. Shade is, at this time of year essential to working outdoors. Our dream is getting geared up…See More

Simple Com systems, or i don't want a bunch of complicated stuff i have to be a PHD to use.

This is a subject near to me old waterlogged heart. I hate logging onto a ship and going to the bridge only to see (much to my dismay) thousands of buttons opening up millions of menus for every bell and whistle imaginable by the sane and insane alike. this seems to be the direction every bit of electronics is going and IMO especially communications gear.on the market you can find VHF radios that do everything but make you coffee; However most are so complicated to use i don't think anyone uses…See More

Looking to?
build A Tehini; I'd better since i asked the mill to start cutting the wood for it.

Hello Ernie

The automatic translators are very difficult to understand. By example, camelote in common French means cheap, poor quality!!!!

You can have details concerning my Tiki46 building on the blog :
http://wharrambuilders.ning.com/profiles/blogs/building-of-the-tiki-46-n2-pha

At first you have to know where will be implanted the masts in the hulls in order to change the accommodations. My masts will be behind the second beam but by example on the Tiki46 Apatiki rigged with classical junk rigs the masts are in front of the second beams.

Here is a general view of PHA# accomodations :

Hi there!

Re:  Errors

On the Tehini plans, there is the original lines drawing, as well as the booklet with the updates.  The booklet lines drawing shows the location of the centerboards, etc, as well as the new sheerline.   This is to give more headroom in the areas of the fore and aft single bunks. 

Comparing the widths in the original plan and the updated plan, note they are the same.  The side view of the lines drawing has new vertical measurements, e.g. 3' 10 1/2" from the waterline on the update vs. 3' 9" or so on the original. 

When I lofted with the updated measurements, the result looked wrong.  What seemed to work better was to draw the entire boat w/ the original measurements, and expand the sheerline from there.  This is easy since the sides of the hull are a straight V.

Let me know if this makes sense.

JOE
