Richard Flegg replied to Reuben Filsell's discussion Bulwarks
"PS I have done reasonably long voyages (e.g. round Britain, Canary Islands), but then I had an Athena 38 with all the benefits (H&C pressure water, showers, fridge freezer, standing headroom, etc.) of a modern large(ish) cruising cat. It was…"

Richard Flegg replied to Reuben Filsell's discussion Bulwarks
"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…"

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…"

Richard Flegg replied to Josh's discussion Any changes to Tiki 26 plans over the years?
"I modified the cabins on my Hinemoa, making them longer and added a curved roof which gave more internal height. Having drawn the new design, I made a mock up which resulted in some changes to improve the aesthetics. It is definitely worth spending…"

"Just added a picture of my self built Hinemoa, finally finished after 3 years (part time) building.Cannot put her on the water yet because of the Coronavirus lock-down."

Richard Flegg replied to SoLong's discussion Coronavirus COVID-19
"In England the marinas are closed and local Harbour Masters have banned leisure boating in their harbours. Also un-necessary travel is banned - I think towing my Hinemoa down to the water would definitely attract unwanted attention from the…"

Finished at last ready for the surveyor. The mast is not stepped so he can examine it in detail. (Survey went well, just a couple of minors). Just finishing off the trailer, but no chance to launch with the Coronavirus lock-down.

Richard Flegg replied to Rod McLaren's discussion Two component paint
"I am currently painting my Hinemoa. It is getting six coats above the waterline: 2 of West epoxy + 2 of Jotun Premguard HB + 2 of Jotun Hardtop HB (semi gloss). Both paints are 2 part. Below the waterline is epoxy only with 500gsm biaxial glass,…"

"The kayaks are Esk 14 Sea Kayaks. Lovely to paddle, fast and stable. Built in stitch and glue as a warm up before starting on the Hinemoa. Building them confirmed my decision to build a Classic rather than a stitch and glue Tiki."

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.
