7 Replies

Some observations.I notice that the classics have a bulwark that looks be around 6"-150mm and that the newer designs have just a toerail.I have also seen modifications that substitute the bulwark for…Continue

Inside the Tanenui.

To all the Tanenui owners out there, I’m looking at this design right now and while I’d like to build at this stage I’m just biding my time and seeing what’s on the used market. I have the study…Continue

"Hey Ian, My name is Reuben and I’m in Perth Australia. I’m looking at Tikis and wondering about that wing sail, I crew on a Corsair tri and we have all sort of adjustments to sail shape, halyard, outhauls, Cunningham, mast rotation…"

"On my Hinemoa I have bulwarks, since I won't be doing long voyages and space is not an issue. So safety rules. If like T F Jones I was going on long voyages in a Hinemoa and space was at a premium then I would certainly build up the centre…"

Richard Flegg replied to Reuben Filsell's discussion Bulwarks
"Sorry to hear about your bulwark rot problem If there is that much rot in the bulwarks, maybe you should have a good look at the beam mountings too. My Hinemoa is brand new (launch held up by Covid 19 lockdown) and all made from marine ply so I am…"

"Ok on my Narai mk4 over 30% of Bulwarks have rot and to remove them and rebuild them would be a hellish amount of work as they are glued (epoxy) on to the hull so i think i will cut them off. bummer as i did like the look,"

Richard Flegg replied to Reuben Filsell's discussion Bulwarks
"I like the idea of bulwarks. If there are no guard rails I don't feel safe with just a toe rail, so I put them in the highly desirable category. The counter argument is that for no more weight one could have more interior space and they could…"

"Levi, questions; What sail shape adjustments are possible with the stock windsail ? What sail adjustments would be desirable ? Does the stock sail have a shape other than the mast sock or is it just a flat panel ? Cheers, RR"

Reuben Filsell replied to Matthew Harrison's discussion Tiki 26 for sale in Connecticut
"Hi Mathew,  I’m assuming this was an epoxy build, in doing the repairs have you been able to ascertain how the rot occurred ? Where was the majority of the rot and how do you think it got a hold ?"

Reuben Filsell replied to Dean Wilkerson's discussion Hobbyhorsing

Budget Boater replied to Reuben Filsell's discussion Bulwarks
"All of the Classics still have bulwarks in the plans. MKIVs have the least bulwark. Everything on a Wharram is subject to rot, especially anywhere water can sit or get trapped (bulwarks, beam troughs, hatch coamings, etc.)"

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( pollardjames95@gmail.com ) for the full details.Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
