My Arctic Tern, designed by Iain Oughtred

"Klaus: Beautiful boat. I've always loved Oughtred's designs.  Have you used it to go over the surf from a beach with breaking waves on it? Would it work as a dory for this purpose? (I mean throwing it on the water from a beach, going…"

"Hi Manos: I´m in the process of filling and sanding too. I'm using ceramic microspheres with epoxi-resin. A filler made this way costs less than a prepared epoxy filler and you can prepare it with the consistency you need. You can sand it…"

Hector -- Welcome aboard! I am planning the finishing touches on my Tiki 31 ~ Tiki THOMCAT. As soon as I get back to work I will be posting photos of the many changes I have decided to make. The Tiki 31 suffers from too much compartmentalization -- lots of small areas. As an example the cockpits, three separate parts, each a bit close quartered. The deck between the masts not real usable. I have changed these two areas and my hope is that it will be much more satisfying.

Hi Hector, unfortunately I don't have fotos from the interiour. But it is pritty according to original plans only I have 75 cm more from the berth towards aft, so we turned the charttable by 90 degrees.
The boat is not only streched by 75 cm the hulls are also wider. This gives about 900 ltrs more boyancy.

Hi Hector: Good to hear from you. I would build another design. The beam troughs are a pain. Troughs in the cabin roof are much preferable. In our cooler climate Courtenay, BC, Canada the air is trapped behind the beams and does not circulate when the heater is on. It makes for a very dark and stagnant air space. With other designs one can build the berths so that they are higher off the floor and have greater width. The troughs are also prone to rot--I am going to try and eliminate them and raise the whole upper structure. MarkH

Hello Hector,
The cabinroof will be curved both in a forward-after and in a sideways direction. This adds a lot to its strength and riggidity. I have now completed the cabin tops for the starboard hull and will install them in a few days so I will be able to post some photos.
The overall increase in the height of all the cabins (fwd, center and aft) is 5cm so the that the looks and windage of the boat wont be affected a lot. I hope all these modifications will work well.
Manos Amanakis
