"Great to hear from you Hans! As the new owners of Wakataitea, we love the boat and really appreciate all the amazing work Hans and Isabelle did. Hans, I hope I get the chance to see your Land Rover, I'm sure it's amazing. From the one…"

"Luis, I'm interested to learn more - can you share some details or is there an online listing? Pictures look great. My wife & I are looking for a Tiki 38 to sail on for a year or more with our kids. We love our Tiki 21 but a year aboard…"

"Quick update: I've asked both Hanneke & Richard Woods about keel stubs. Some difference in opinions there. Hanneke: "I think the best solution would be small streamlined keels like on the Mana or the Tiki 30. You can see the keel shape…"

"Good point. He's been pretty active in the Race to Alaska stuff, I'll try & contact him and put this question to him. Sounds like he's  thought a lot about all these options.  If I add anything, I'm leaning towards…"

"PS if you are not proud there is always the lee board option - some people swear by them. Also, Kohler's promotion of keel winglets - though I can never see how they can work that well compared to a deep NACA foil…"

"I saw that by Richard Woods, and no doubt good advice. On the other hand I think that he is saying that a piercing daggerboard is not good compared to boards in the hulls. Its a relative thing - I'm guessing that a piercing dagger board is not…"

"Cool, great tip. Richard Woods has a lengthy, awesome post on this topic here: http://www.sailingcatamarans.com/index.php/articles/12-to-be-published-mainly-technical/53-keels-or-daggerboards-the-pros-and-cons. I also like the center-mounted…"

"BTW my multihull sailing bible is "Catamaran Racing for the 90s" by Rick White and Mary Wells. The title is hilarious and may initially sound off-putting, but this book is the bomb for sail trim technique. It is about beach cat racing, but…"

"Hi Michael, I would suggest trying the boatdesign.net "multihulls" or "foils" forums - you will definitely get some informed feedback. I have also toyed with the idea of a center-mounted (single) long piercing dagger board.…"

"Thanks for sharing. Sounds like I need to fair the keel strips. Interesting idea on the rudders. I'm still thinking about some form of keel, maybe something like you see on the Mana 24 design: http://wharram.com/site/news/2014/mana24. I may…"

"Hi Michael, No, I don't get bubbles. I suspect that it is very important to have the hull of a Tiki very clean and fair, given that it is the "foil". I have been looking at the hull and rudders alot and reading about foil and rudder…"
