About me or us?
Before I was born my parents built a Tiki 26 ARoamer. They sailed her thousands of miles. When I was 9 she came out the water and my parents got too busy. She sat and rotted for 10 years. I have spent the last 6 months re building her and she will be going in the water this spring. I loved working on her and love the Wharram cats, very much thinking of building a Tiki 38 to sail around the world.
