Maximum engine power for Tiki31
5 Replies

I just launched my Tiki 31 Maija-Liisa, and on the first sail I was met by a policeman on a water scooter.  He congratulated me for the big occasion; it remained a mystery to me how he had known that…Continue

In the plans of Tiki 31 the trampoline is made with a rope going round the netting. The leading edge of the webbing is suspended on three points: in the middle to the forestay and the corners of the…Continue

In the plans of Tiki 31 it is suggested that the steering would be arranged with a "whipstaff" or a sort of  tiller bar replica, connected to tiller bars with system of cables. I wanted to use a…Continue

"PS congratulations on launching your boat, massive achievement. I had 15hp Honda on order when the Tohatsu turned up, which saved me £2K and added me 2", but had the weight disadvantage as described. The 15hp seemed the ideal motor for…"

"Olli  Great to hear from you. Leveller has a honda 15. It is reliable, and seems perfect for the boat  neither heavy nor powerless, and in fact wth more than enough power to counter any strong tide and still run forward with authority. .…"

"20hp Tohatsu MFS 20C has 27.1" ex- ex- longshaft. I have this one but it's obsolete,  though might be available 2nd hand. I got mine on Ebay.  Downside is it weighs 65kg. When I carry it I have to sit down after. It might be a…"

"(The high trust version of yamaha is really good. It has a bigger prop and so more thrust in waves and wind ahead) Regards Bart"

"Hi, I use a 9.9 Yamaha high trust, xl on a tiki 30. I think the motor is the right one. 6.5 knots in flat water. 5knots with 5bft head on. For my taste 15 HP high trust would be the max and a bit overkill. I think the tiki 31 is a bit heavier? 2…"

Maximum engine power for Tiki31

I just launched my Tiki 31 Maija-Liisa, and on the first sail I was met by a policeman on a water scooter.  He congratulated me for the big occasion; it remained a mystery to me how he had known that this very day I was launhcing the boat! Obviously I am living in a small town, where the news spread quite rapidly.What the policeman said next, was another surprise. He asked for the registration of the boat. In the process on building and launching I had completely forgotten about it. In Finland…See More

Hei Olli! Onnea teille! Hienö kuula että ovat muita Wharrameitä täällä suomessa! Olemme juuri tehnyt kolme viikon reissu Itämerin ympari - Bornholm, Kopenhamina, Puola, Klaipeida. Oli todella kiinostava, mutta myöskin suurulista koska se meri on niin huono kunnossa sinilevan takia. Toivotan teille "fair winds"!
