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

"Immersed transoms are only a penalty at very low speed, if the boat is moving quick enough and the flow breaks away then there is no consequence. What that speed is for various hull forms I'm not so sure about. From my observations of a few…"

"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.)"

Bulwarks

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 headroom.Very few Wharrams have lifelines.I've seen stories about repairing rot in and around bulwarks which maybe due to the older pre-epoxy build methods.So.... my question is, on the classic designs is the substantial bulwarks a good thing or not ? Would you prefer the headroom or are they a…See More

"Hiya, when I look at topics that have many replies I click on view previous comments and it loads one more, so I’m not seeing the whole topic which is rather annoying as I’m trying to learn as much as I can about Wharrams. cheers R"

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 plans and love the idea of the Tiki rig and beams hybrid. However what I’m having an issue with is getting a sense of the internal space, if anyone has any pictures of the Tanenui inside preferably with a person inside for scale I’d really appreciate it, indeed probably pics of a Tiki 26 or 30 would…See More

"Hi Dean, My understanding of the rationale behind the canoe sterns is that these designs are primarily for tradewinds sailing, i.e., downwind, as I understand it the idea is that the canoe stern sinks into the following wave rather than be lifted by…"

"Drill the holes oversize and then fill them with epoxy and glass with bolts in place, waxing the bolts before hand will allow them to be removed. simple."

Reuben Filsell replied to Matthias von Mutius's discussion Adding Winglets to my Tiki 26
"Brilliant ! Now that you have worked out the angle have you fixed them in permanently ? Those bolts and angle brackets would be draggy as all get out ! A couple of points. I would angle the foils aft a bit so they don't collect weed. I would…"

"D.W. I take it your sponsons are to retrofit an existing boat rather than a new build, in which case I'd be inclined to put a swept back horizontal foil on the bottom of the rudder skeg set parallel to the waterline, such a foil would not only…"
