"Now sold. We have a new cat, not a wharram but ply epoxy and a wharram / hobie inspired hull shape so we still have a loose connection :-) Happy sailing Robert"

"Running the electric tiller pilot out of the stbd cabin works well, the only down side is that it blocks access but we do not go down there often when sailing and generally only use the tiller pilot when motoring or very light winds. Robert"

"Hi Robert. I am intrigued with the tiller Pilot set up you have on mango elephant. I hope to do the same or similar set up on my Tiki 30. Were you happy with this set up and is there anything you would do differently if you were to do it again.…"

Axel replied to Robert Sheridan's discussion Using dyneema for rigging - warning
"In the process of finalizing the choices for standing rigging on a Tiki 38. Man, that heat-treated dyneema is expensive stuff! I can buy 500 feet of 1/4 inch, 316 stainless for less than the cost of 75 feet of 9mm dynex dux. While I appreciate the…"

"Not a this time Roger. I do like the adventure the small boat brings. Last summer I overtook a 30ft boat in a messy 4 to 5 ft swell. We looked great as we sped by with the asymmetric pulling hard with the deck awash every now and then. That was a 4…"

Dave replied to Robert Sheridan's discussion Going to windward in the group TIKI 30
"It is no problem tacking if you back the jib and don't bring it across until the mainsail fills on the opposite tack.  If your racing around the cans you will be at a disadvantage and in very shifty conditions its not worth tacking on…"

Tiki 30 centre section available

We have replaced our Tiki 30 open cockpit with a pod. We still have the old centre section, which is in good repair, and if anyone wants it and is willing to collect it from East Yorkshire UK please get in touch.

Old cockpit has now been recycled into a stern walkway and engine well cover. The foam sandwich is really light and stiff so ideal for this sort of application so we have salvaged as much as we can and will store it pending the next project.

I started sailing with the seasons along the US East Coast over 20 years ago and am very familiar with all of it from southern Maine to lower Florida. There are many inlest from ocean to protected Intra Coastal Waterway and most experienced cruisers with good sea boats enjoy a little of both as weather dictates. One can anchor the whole way so marina fees need not apply.
Look forward to seeing you, ann and Nev
