“To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea… “cruising” it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.

“I’ve always wanted to sail to the south seas, but I can’t afford it.” What these men can’t afford is not to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of “security.” And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine – and before we know it our lives are gone.

What does a man need – really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in – and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That’s all – in the material sense, and we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention for the sheer idiocy of the charade.

The years thunder by, The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed.

Where, then, lies the answer? In choice.

Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life? ”

Tiki 30 #226 here!

Tonight, getting home from work, I see a big envelope resting on my apartment's door.

They were the full plans for my Tiki 30 number 226!

Feels like Christmas! Now I'll have to discipline myself and read and re-read carefully the instructions and plans till I can see in my head all of the building steps in detail. Then make a general buying list and many partial buying lists for every step of the building. No building allowed yet.

Then I'll start making all the small and…

Hola Luis, acá ando, tratando de construir un Tiki30. El mes pasado me llegaron los planos. No bien consiga los fondos (calculo entre 3 y 10 meses) empiezo a hacerlo. Y tu Swaggie? Lo vendiste? Ví que ahora tenés un Tiki 38.

Bueno, un abrazo.

Ricardo.

Hi Ricardo thanks for the response.  My email is exd.electrical@gmail.com. 

One more question. The lashing you use per-stretched correct?  and for the rudder lashing do you use per-stretched or normal nylon with some stretch?
