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 a lot, Budget Boater. I'll let you know what I eventually decide and how it turns out."

"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…"

"How about pumping out? Doesn't the opposite side smack against the outlet and prevent emptying?"

Budget Boater replied to Jordi's discussion Working design for holding tank on a Tiki 30?
"Like anything pliable, a flexible tank must be isolated from chafe. I used cut down foam pool floats against the hull for the tank to rest on and tied out the corners to minimize movement. Lots of cruising and never lost a tank (I had…"

"Thanks for your help, Budget Boater. The problem with tank size is fitting it through the hatch. I've found a 35-liter one which may fit... barely enough, but it will have to do. I'm wary of flexible tanks, since so many people seem to…"

"Gravity? You cannot rely upon gravity. You must use a pump, hence my drawing. I used a 3 gallon poly tank in the stb lazarette, and used the Lavac system shown above. When I sold the boat a couple a years later, the tank was still as new (I never…"

Jordi replied to Jordi's discussion Working design for holding tank on a Tiki 30?
"Thanks for the information Budget Boater. My main difficulties come from the very narrow spaces in the Tiki 30, and the very small freeboard which I guess makes gravity outlet impossible. What size (LxWxH) and shape is your tank? Where did you…"

Jordi replied to Jordi's discussion Working design for holding tank on a Tiki 30?
"Thanks for your recommendations, Budget Boater. I've found plenty of information on plumbing in the net. My difficulties come from the narrowness of the spaces and hatches in the Tiki 30 and the very little freeboard, which I guess completely…"

"I cannot tell you what size tank to use based on the lack of information you have provided, but here are a couple of schematics on how to do it. Having installed dozens of head plumping systems, it is important that you do not skimp on the…"

"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…"
