Hi FolksI hope you'll forgive this shameless self-promotion.I've just published my latest book on Amazon.It's entitled 'A Foolish Odyssey', and yes, that's a Tiki 38 on the cover.My reason for telling you about it?It tells the full story of how I came to build my Tiki 38 'Gleda'. If you want a warts and all, heart on…See More
Thanks Neil. I've done a couple of looong refits and buile a small craft or two, but I did all that without 2 kids. I'll be ready to get going on a boat once I can fing the proper house. I think a Tiki 38 would be perfect for my family.
Tiki 38 "Tinto" is still on the guadiana river, but I did sell her to a very nice man named Ray o'Neill.
I do not know if he is there, he uses Tinto for holydays.
I did built the boat my self and launched her in 2007 in Alicante Spain.
We, me and my wife Thea lived on Tinto for 4 years and travelled that years between Mallorca and Panama.
The boat is lying just south of alcoutim where I built a mooring.
It is a pitty I am not meeting you on board of the tiki.
In the 8 years I've owned Tinto and the thousands of miles of sailing her, I did meet only one other tiki 38 which was the pilgrim in the Azores. (see the final crossing of the Pilgrim on you tube or on the wharrambuilders site).
I am now living in Holland again, where I am racing dinghys, just like in the past.
I hope you enjoy the river and the fabulous sailing area in the algarve.
Regards, Tom Haver
