Hi,the builder of my newly-purchased Tiki 30 made a mistake, in spite of his experience (everybody makes mistakes) and the chainplates are misaligned by 8º to 12º. The fwd one here is the worst…Continue

Jordi replied to paul anderson's discussion strong point for drogue
"Thanks Roger. The building plans do indeed recommend tying the anchor briddle to the front beam and not the deck cleats "for serious anchoring". (To clarify: I'm talking about a Tiki 30 in my case.)"

"Thanks. Will take a while -- I'm in planning phase and I don't plan to begin actual work until the weather gets dryer, in April or early May -- but I'll post pics and inform on results."

"Even just a piece of hose, cemented into the hole could work too."

Edward Wolfe replied to Jordi's discussion LPG cylinder storage in a Tiki 30?
"It should be simple to add as downward S that would prevent water going up, short of sinking, and still allow the gas to drain down. A few 90deg PVC elbows should do the job. Good luck and please post picture of your final design. "

"Thanks Ricardo. I'll probably do that if I decide for the self-draining locker solution. Fortunately the 1-meter rule applies only for cylinders stored in the open, not in locker (then there are other rules relative to the placement of the…"

Ricardo Aráoz replied to Jordi's discussion LPG cylinder storage in a Tiki 30?
"You might put a floor in the locker so as to have some space between the gas bottle and any salt water that enters through the venting hole. OTOH the locker is not 1 meter away from the entrance to the boat."

Jordi replied to Jordi's discussion LPG cylinder storage in a Tiki 30?
"Thanks Rogerio. Unfortunately I don't have those lockers in the cockpit (which I presume are ventilated at the bottom, so appropriate as a gas cylinder locker). I've considered other places in the open, but the BSS requirement to be 1…"

"We don't want to do a "Ply Floor Self Draining" because was one more hole in a hull."

Edward Wolfe replied to Jordi's discussion LPG cylinder storage in a Tiki 30?
"Page 12 of the Assembly Plans just show using the hole which allows the gas pipe to enter via bulkhead 6 to also vent gas inside. I suppose this does not meet ABYC :)  But then Sheet 1 of Structural Details appears to show a small oval opening…"

Jordi replied to Jordi's discussion LPG cylinder storage in a Tiki 30?
"Thanks Budget Boater. There are currently two Campingaz 907 bottles in the port lazarette, with a regulator and a hose direct to the galley. Yes, storing outside may be the most sensible solution. I'll look into solutions for…"

Budget Boater replied to Jordi's discussion LPG cylinder storage in a Tiki 30?
"I assume you are talking about a standard 10lb or 20lb tank with regulator or similar, and not the 1lb portables for camp stoves. You can make a vented box for the lazarette, or you can store it outside. Every boat I have ever had, the propane…"

Budget Boater replied to Jordi's discussion Working design for holding tank on a Tiki 30?
"A flexible tank will work 100% when properly installed. There is no magic. If you drop one in a hole (like most people seem to do) then it will not function correctly, and will eventually chafe through. Isolating the flex tank from chafe and…"
