On the Tehini plans, there is the original lines drawing, as well as the booklet with the updates. The booklet lines drawing shows the location of the centerboards, etc, as well as the new sheerline. This…"
"I have a recently purchased (2009) set of Tehini plans, and all of the bulkheads are straight. An Ariki recently presented by Boatsmith had been updated to have some camber in the sides of the hull. I don't know how to post links, the…"
rot is caused by fresh water finding it's way into timber.
To avoid this 2 things must be in place,
Firstly the timber must have a watertight protective membrane,typically produced by multiple coatings of epoxy/glass or…"
When built to plans, generally the classic designs have flat decks. Does this cause them to be prone to rot, in practice?Would it be difficult to add deck camber without causing other structural problems with the boats? Thanks! Joe See More
I'm planning to build a Tehini over the next few years. I'd be interested in any interior photos you have, as well as descriptions of modifications you have made.
Do you have coachroofs or is the entire hull a flat deck? How…"
"I've read about your boat on the multihull forum, and studied all the pictures you had posted.
It was your boat, and Colin Flynn's, that got me to think a Wharram can be modified without resulting in catastrophe.

"Thank you very much!
I did consider the dowels would create 5000 or so possible leak points. I guess my concern about the strength of epoxy was unfounded.
I did plan to reinforce the areas below the beams, exactly how I am going to try to figure…"
"We build our boats with epoxy and use deck screws as temporary clamps. We then remove the screws and work Thickened epoxy into the hole and move on. Drilling and doweling seems unnecessary and and then has grain running the wrong way which could…"
Hello all.I’ve been reviewing a set of Tehini plans, and I have some building questions.So here goes:1. I’ve read in the other forums about galvanized screws, nails, etc and problems with corrosion. There are also reports of some kinds of stainless corroding. I’ve read that some boats are constructed without metallic fittings, at least below the waterline.What I was considering was using cheap wood screws to hold parts in place until the epoxy cures, then remove the screws. Then drill out the…See More
What are your sailing plans (coastal, offshore, etc) and how many will be sailing with you. We had Tehini study plans up on the wall for many months. The designs are so appealing, it is hard to choose!
