"The plans say that for the lashings you can use 5 full turns of 5mm diameter pre stretched braided polyester rope or 7 turns of 4 mm."

"Hi Ricardo thanks for the response.  My email is exd.electrical@gmail.com.  One more question. The lashing you use per-stretched correct?  and for the rudder lashing do you use per-stretched or normal nylon with some stretch? "

Robert Sheridan replied to Jesse Walker's discussion Tiki 26 Beam lashings
"Have a search, there have been quite a few discussions on materials and techniques for getting the lashings tight.  If memory serves 6mm prestretch and a minimum of 6 turns, but do not quote me!"

boatsmith replied to Jesse Walker's discussion Theta 26 Mono Rig on Tiki 26
"This can most certainly be done. BUT  The rig loads on a 26' cat are greater than a 26' mono. This usually means that the section is larger. Usually there will be a set of spreaders with diamond shrouds to help keep the mast in…"

Theta 26 Rig for Tiki 26 ??

Hi Jesse,

Rory here, looks like you have picked up the Hinemoa called Owl in NZ?? Did you buy here from Hans Bader?? Habs was a good friend of mine when I was living in NZ back in the 90's. Had a fun sail from Auckland to Whangaparoa after Hans had completed the wider beams, deck tent etc.

Anyway, hope you have fun.

Cheers

Rory

Yeh I did have fun, my dad actually sailed her up from Auckland, however I never met the previous owner, I have had to sell her, because I have taken a job in Hamilton, the new owner lives in Ruakaka and hopefully him and his wife and kids will get great use out of her,  her wider beam really does make her very stable, I sailed her in some heavy winds and could not life a hull, however  I need something a little bigger for what i plan on.
