I hope some day to build myself a Tiki30, perhaps a Tiki 38 though.
I am not sure it does count here but I own a Laser Std and I am very proud I can still race it and have fun.
Country, City, and State?
Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, RJ
About me or us?
I was crew in Star class boats in late 70's and early 80's in Rio de Janeiro. I presently sail a Laser STD in club regattas and occasionally I am aboard a 40 footer in some coastal sailing. In 2011 I was exposed for the first time to the Wharram concepts and Catamarans designs by a friend than about to start building a Tiki30 in Rio de Janeiro.
Professionally I am an electrical engineer and I have knowledge of adaptive planning. I am comfortable with hand and power tools, with happy experiences repairing every thing at home, including plumbing and roofing and, in the past, my car brake and clutch.
I was looking to Tiki 30, if I can prove myself it is feasible to build it myself in my house in Rio de Janeiro. However, as I learn more about the different Wharram catamarans, I found out that Tiki31 is also a candidate while T38 is a dream.
