Maxim Jurgens replied to barry easter's discussion sails for tiki 26
"RollyTasker Sails here in Phuket makes lots of Wharram sails and say they "will beat any genuine quotation". Being based in Phuket we obviously use Rolly Tasker sails for all of our boats and we have always been happy with both price and…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to patrick lennon's discussion Rigging specs for tiki 30
"I wouldn't worry too much about the rig for now . Not much wind in S'pore. In my experience the first beam lashings to go are the inboard ones on beam nr 3 . If they are still ok the others are for sure still ok . If you change beam…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to patrick lennon's discussion Rigging specs for tiki 30
"6mm, swaged  eyes , shackles with red loctite applied on the threads, lashing ropes  6- 8 mm polyester braid ,minimum 5 turns . When making the loops which go in the top of the mast do not forget to clad them in plastic tube. Which T 30…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Rogerio Martin's discussion Houston, we have one problem!
"I have always greatly disliked the fore stay bridle thing. Where we kept them we use greatly oversized U bolts ( 12mm T 38, 10 mm T30 ) and big ugly backing plates . i do not like drilling holes through the hull in that place and all the load…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to patrick lennon's discussion Would like to buy Wharram 30-38 feet
"There is a Tiki 38 for sale in Phuket . 2014 , Seascape built , diesel engine and hydraulic drives . Custom built for current owner . Owner lives in Thailand but is re locating to Portugal ,hence him wanting to sell the boat . There is also a Tiki…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Bart's discussion roler jib or hank on with a aditional reef on a tiki 30?
"We have over the years used both methods. Whilst the idea of a hanked on jib with one ( or two ) tie -in reefs seems to be attractive ( retaining a reasonable sail shape when reefed, simplicity of a hanked on jib) in practice we find a roller reefed…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Rob Daigle's discussion Andy Smith boats
"Judging by your pics your'e in guenther's yard . Highly recommended . Your next mast(s) will not have rot issues . I prefer alu masts because making a good one myself  is within  the reach of my skills whilst a good wooden one is…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Rob Daigle's discussion Andy Smith boats
"Rob: Are you in Thailand ? ( you mention Thai workers) If you want alu masts I can advise where to get your alu from and how we did our masts,incl conduits fro wires etc . I my opinion the best wood for masts is called aluminium…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Ygal Golan's discussion Tiki 38 engine (question)
"What type of engine set up you would choose depends on where you use the boat . If you sail in area with ( normally) no strong currents , steep waves, etc then  two outboards of about 10 - HP will be just fine . Advantages and disadvantages of…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Olli Väänänen's discussion Up and down movement of the rudders
"We insert 7 mm dia aluminium tubes in the lashing holes in the rudders and sternposts. First you drill the holes large enough to accept the tubes , coat the inside of the holes with epoxy and when dried fix the tubes in place with sikaflex or…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Ian Bamsey's discussion Continuous Line Furler on Tiki 21
" I would not fuff around using a code zero furler as a head sail reefer . It was not intended for the job and is unlikely to work satisfactorily . If you could lay your hand on a set of foils you could possibly convert the furler  in to a…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Zach Johnson's discussion Tiki 30 mast measurements
"I do like the Tiki rig. A lot . I like the looks and the ease of trim of all sides of the sail .It performs well on all points of sail. What I like a lot too is that one can get rid of the sail in just  moments without having to turn into the…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to bruno legenne's discussion WHY PODS ARE NOT WIDER???
"The Thailand T 30 with deck pod is our's . When deciding upon the design we wanted a deck cabin which was spacious inside, would incorporate a double berth plus lots of under seat stowage ,plus the (rather enormous) fridge.We wanted to keep the…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Bart's discussion looking for a way to improve upwind sailing.
"Re head sail and shroud tension On our T 30's and T 38's which have roller furled head sails we do not use halyards for the jib anymore. When hoisting the jib we bring it up with the spi halyard , go up the mast and tie the top eye of the…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Bart's discussion looking for a way to improve upwind sailing.
"Bjoern: Re dropping the main . Try running your halyards OUTSIDE the sleeve.The reduction in friction is very considerable , it makes hoisting and ropping the sail much easier . And : make a 4 mm line between the jaws of your gaffs with a loop…"

Maxim Jurgens replied to Graham Anley's discussion What type of rig for my Pahi 42?
"I would not go for a crab claw or other "exotic " rig until you have sufficient sailing experience to handle such rigs and are able to judge re the pro's and cons of a conventional rig . Based on your experience ,neccessities and…"
