13 Replies

Hi, I am very interest in the tiki 38 or 46. I like what boatsmith did with the Ariki deck. Would it be possible to remove the deck pod and have a large roof like this? Is is practical on a tiki?…Continue

"I am planning a similiar but smaller roof behind my deckpod on my tiki 38 , the limiting thing is height for headroom under sails, mine is sloop rig and the boom is high enough to stand under. I want to be able to get from 1 hull to the other…"

"Not sure what your considering storing on the cabin tops but having too much weight that high could adversely affect the balance of the boat. Marty's suggestion of raising the roof and floors and using the storage created low down in the hulls…"

"If you get the lashings tight enough the flex is so minimal. I can place my fingers on the beams and hull while sailing in rough 2-3 m seas while it's blowing 25-30kts and the movement between the beam and hull is less than 1-2 mm. BB describes…"

"The hulls do not flex. The hulls can "rock" in relationship to the crossbeams. There are solutions: Monocoque - glass and bolt the beams into the hulls to eliminate the potential for rocking. If you build bridge deck sides with windows in…"

"Yes!  Thanks for the Gunboat 55 link.  That is nearly what I had in mind.  Especially the kitchen up.  See how the stove is on top of the cabin?  I like the idea of keeping all of the propane between hulls.  I want to…"

"As BB says, anything is possible and if you can dream it you can build it. I raised the pod height on my tiki 46 and put the galley up. It works great but isn't everyone's preference. I also has to slightly re engineer the mast case on the…"

"Technically, you can do anything that you want. You could exchange the designed pod out for a wide cockpit with a hard top similar to Bazinga. On the Tiki 46, your primary consideration with such a modification is the location of the main hatches…"

"OOps that was a galley (in the pod). Most people set up their boats for where they do the majority of their sailing. So that has to guide you largley. In heavier conditions a pod will offer more protection and i like the bed in the pod but at a…"

Brett Parker replied to Jerry's discussion Tiki mod?
"2400 x2400 approx. When offshore, you spend all your time in the pod because it is noisy and more uncomfortable in the hulls. So you kind of live up top. I have seen a t 46 with a galley in it and a table that folded into a bed. Pluses and minuses…"

"Indeed. A small, portable one with a very good mesh cover to keep sparks from being a problem. We make them out of 55 gallon drums all the time. Just cut the bottom 1/3 off and poke a few air holes in it. You can make them really nice with fancy air…"
