"Not building, I'm reftitting. Too lazy to build anything bigger than a dinghy. I don't think most people would find the tiki30 too big, more likely too small. I'm a dinghy sailor at heart."

Levi Verwoest replied to Éric Bouvéron's discussion Enjoy the boat, enjoy the food, but my sailing skills...
"Using a boom will give a much better sail shape as you can get good foot tension. Off the wind it is a necessity for decent sail shape.. at the moment my Tiki30 has a piece of bamboo, approx. 35mm diameter.  Double mainsheet is great to help…"

Levi Verwoest replied to john james's discussion Strap VS Rope Lashing in the group TIKI 30
"I have a few questions on the rope/side lashings. My tiki30 has the webbing connection, which is absolute rubbish. Holes in deck that get pulled on cause leaks. I converted my Hinemoa to rope lashings, and she became a much better boat. I want to do…"

"Struan That's a good looking boat you have. Been thinking of a forward beam, but have a bit of rot to sort out first. Any chance you could send me the dimensions of the lashing blocks on the hull?"

Levi Verwoest replied to Levi Verwoest's discussion Tiki 30 beam question
"Well I bought the boat. Other than ease of assembly I am not too happy with the webbing and bolt assembly. You end up with sharp bits to catch line on. The tension of the beams is transmitted to through deck bolts, which have leaked and caused rot…"
