"FYI - I also asked JWD on this subject. It turns out the error in the chainplaite mounting angle actually originated in the drawings, which will be corrected right away. Hanneke gave the following recommendation:"

"If you want it right, correct the problem. Currently there is an unintended torque on the bolts, when the designer intended the pull it be straight and no torque. If your a Half A type don't worry and carry on. If this were a choice of putting…"

"Thanks B.B. Unfortunately the boat, albeit old, has not sailed much, and only in protected waters -- the builder made it for sailing, but life circumstances have not allowed him to... that's why he sold. My concern is on the kind of failure…"

"Ok. The chain plates are misaligned. What are your concerns? How many miles are on the boat thus far? Do you see any signs of problems that have been caused by this misalignment?  If not, then the "simplest solution is to leave them…"

"Sorry for any mis information Jordi, you are probably right, the tiki 26 has lanyard cleats on the plan but after looking at photos of the 30 they all seem to use chain plates. Be interesting what other people have to say."

"Thanks Frank. It was my understanding that the design called for lashings for smaller Tikis, but chainplates for the Tiki 30. Where can I find information on the design for lashings for the Tiki 30?"

Frank Higgott replied to Jordi's discussion Misaligned chainplates
"I would consider taking the opportunity to change the chain plates to lashing cleats like the beam lashings cleats."
