Given the use of cantered dagger boards on catamaran designs by both John Shuttleworth and Chris White I was wondering whether anyone had done the same with a Wharram, or thought about it, in…Continue

"Mahiya, a Tiki 30 was built at Andy Smith and brought to the US. Search through the internet and you'll find the owner, Ray Barkley, has some videos, might get a clue to his where abouts. The boat was for sale a while ago."

"Hi Robert, Gunther is still building but no longer licensed by Wharram. So you buy the plans and he builds the boat. As Marty pointed out this gives him better scope to make changes requested by the owner, Wharram doesn't particularly like…"

Andy Best-Dunkley replied to Nigel Signal's discussion Dagger Boards for a Pahi
"I suppose the Ariki has a bit more internal space, but anyway, I am not saying that I want to do this, but that here is a good example that shows it IS possible! For example, many (most) builders don't install the Pahi 42's forward…"

Soren Carlsen replied to Nigel Signal's discussion Dagger Boards for a Pahi
"well I think it´s easyer to find that kind of the space on the Ariki that was made by Boatsmith than on a traditional build Pahi42. Don´t you??"

Andy Best-Dunkley replied to Nigel Signal's discussion Dagger Boards for a Pahi
"Here is a link to Boatsmith's video which clearly shows the daggerboards fitted to the Ariki https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Sxgj0KtedU (I hope it is ok to give the link here...?) Another idea that I think would be worth looking into is vortex…"

"What about the issue with the boards up and mooring alongside. The angle of the boards if they follow the outside of the boat?"

Nigel Signal replied to Nigel Signal's discussion Dagger Boards for a Pahi
"Hi and thanks for the suggestions. In response; 1) Dagger boards on outside of hull; all the reading I've done suggests it is extremely difficult to provide enough support for the board to stop it move laterally without both…"

Éric Bouvéron replied to Nigel Signal's discussion Dagger Boards for a Pahi
"Hi, Why not put the board outside, as it is seen on some old Dutch boats? The shape may of course be different, but I think it could work fine and the system allows the board to rotate."

Big tane replied to Nigel Signal's discussion Dagger Boards for a Pahi

Andy Best-Dunkley replied to Nigel Signal's discussion Dagger Boards for a Pahi
"I've thought about this but can't warrant doing this to our existing boat. A new build could be a different matter. As far as I understand Boatsmith did something like this on an Ariki 48, but I am not sure if the daggerboard is angled or…"

Hourua Reflections

We've now owned Hourua for 3 years and still learning how to sail her efficiently. Since we finally got her down to Singapore we have been racing her at our club, Changi Sailing Club. We have managed to surprise everyone, including ourselves with our performance, regularly winning on handicap in a mixed fleet of boats. Have added some sail power, much bigger genoa, approx 140% and of course an asymmetrical spinnaker. As Singapore is basically on the equator we generally sail in very light… Continue

Hello Nigel, glad to know Eric's boat in good hands. My WaveDancer is for the time beeing out of the water. If we get the right offer we'll sell her since we have a long term project in the Philippines, with ev. a new boat. If not, we'll try to bring her to the Philippines as well.

Unfortunately we will not be in Thailand this winter, since we have the start up of our future venture in the Philippines and this takes a lot or work.  How ever I wish you all the best and lots of fun with "Busket" (or did you rename her?) By the way - Gunther is a very good friend of mine, a real character, a real good chap and outstanding boatbuilder. Cheers Wave (Markus Immer & Analyn Pocong)
