Unique Taneui/Tiki hybrid + beautiful mooring for sale

Hi all Wharram fans, my lovely Tacenui Mae has to be sold due to a change in my circumstances. If you fancy taking up the Wharram lifestyle with a boat resembling and close to in size a Tiki 30 but with standing headroom and based on the wonderful Exe Estuary Devon U.K. This could be the perfect package for you. The boat is currently being refitted on a private beach berth outside the workshop and by a professional Exmouth Boatbuilder were she winters at a small cost, and saves expensive haul…See More

"Hi Allen, I don't have any photos yet but will try on this I pad next time I'm in Exmouth (about twenty miles away) I'm guessing that Tacenui Mae's freeboard has been raised by around 5 or 6 inches this has increased her length…"

"Hi Allen, yes I'll be your friend Tacenui Mae is maybe the only built from scratch Tanenui/Tiki hybrid which Hanneke is referring it can be done. My Tanenui hulls have had their freeboard raised which in turn gives bigger wider internal volume…"

" Hi, just my two euro-cents about the vangs: I find them extremely useful for close haul courses, the twist of the upper sail is really only controlable with these lines that go up to the gaff. In my experience we gain about 5° and 10%…"

"Thomas, Here's what I did on my T26 Vaea: Simply put, one sheet positions the main to port or starboard, and the other controls the draft. The strop that runs through the Antal snatch block allows the mainsail to self tend for short-tacking, or…"

"It boils down to muscle or purchases.  The technique we use is to have a bar which we swing on as we make each turn and at the same time tap the turns with the handle of a hammer to ensure an even tension.  Once all the turns are on and…"

"I had two experienced sailors who wanted to see how the tiki mainsail worked: we had a very pleasant sail. One was amazed at how he flinched everytime the main self-tended, as he was expecting a boom to swing across! He loved it!"

"Many thanks for this Ron, very clear and easily understood, my next question to the site is what's the best way to get hull/deck beam lashings tight, I think mine flexes a little too much for my liking? Thanks Nibby Tacenui mae "

Robert Sheridan replied to Richard Gordon David's discussion Tiki rig mainsheet arrangement query
"The short answer is yes.  The standard set up is to have horse between across the boat just forward of the rudders with control lines (ours, are on a purchase) to allow you to set the mainsheet angle in conjuction with the tension on the main…"

Hi Nibby

I'm not sure what the neglected cat is. I'm not that familiar with Wharrams apart from Tiki and Pahi.

Where my boat is currently stored is nothing to do with Mark Sansom - it's done direct with EDDC. It's a standard fee - currently £240 - no matter what the boat. Make enquiries to Knowle, car parks dept.

Sorry, no idea what the fee at Turf is.

Hi Nibby,

Thanks for the message, sorry its taken so long to see it! Welcome to the wharram world. Give us a shout when you get the boat round to the Exe. There is starting to be a few of us here on the Exe now.

Cheers, Rory
