"I should have thought of this earlier. Are you in need of a trailer? I have a brand new long and wide one that might work for your Tiki with some mods. Has a 1350kg German torsion axle. Let me know if you want to see some photos."

"I had heard teak did not glue well with epoxy due to its natural oils plus it is a bit on the heavier side. On the other hand, I have seen a lot of teak here and not noticed any oiliness. Another issue with teak may be that clear heartwood is hard…"

Hi Rex
The Marine ply seems quite good I have pcs lying around that have been through many wet dry cycles and no delimitation. The red Marranti is a nice light wood but if you order without seeing the wood expect some sap wood in the order also pcs with grain run out  perhaps 5% not usable. The epoxy I use is good have used it on several boats there is also a brand in Thailand called Bossco Epoxy used for bathroom tiles ect pre mixed with filler slow setting and no sagging (about 3 hrs) makes really nice fillets I used it on 3 boats and they held together really well. Check east marine they have good price on epoxy and the best price on 200gsm fiberglass. I will send the info for mast when I recieve it .
Amateur build plywood boats have very little resale value. I build because I enjoy it but it makes no sense financially.
 
Cheers

Hi Rex
Thanks for the link.
As for wood - for framing , hatches, toe rails and heavy parts I used old teak I salvaged and recut on a table saw. In the north you can find a lot of secondhand timbers as the good stuff seams to last forever. The teak is light strong and really nice to work with. Second choice would be takien tong . Try to get everything kiln or properly dried . As splitting and checking are a real problem with many species. What is the name of your design? We're in the north do you plan to build? I am just about finished building and hope to launch before new year.

Hi Rex. I am looking for a trailer but I would like to have one which is galvanized. I just went through one mild steel trailer it lasted about 4 years with saltwater use. other than that your trailer looks about perfect for my boat. What is you asking price as is?
