Nigel Signal replied to Steve Denton's discussion Importing a Wharram Built by Gunther Nutt or Andy Smith
"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."

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??"

"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…"

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)
