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…"

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…"

Nigel darbyshire replied to Robert Sheridan's discussion Going to windward in the group TIKI 30
"Hi Peter, thanks for the reply, i was hoping the tiki would tack a lot better than my hobie s , without having to back wind the jib etc , but as long as they do go around , without the dreaded going backwards with rudders reversd caper if you dont…"

Peter Killick replied to Robert Sheridan's discussion Going to windward in the group TIKI 30
"Hi Nigel Entirely concur with Robert. Patience, a tight main and a backed jib are the trick to tacking a 30. Even relatively high performance racing dinghy cats like Hobies and Darts are hard to get around, and use the same principle"

Going to windward

I saw a message about tacking and hobby horsing from Nigel Darbyshire but could not find the thread or work out how to reply to it so:Hi Nigel,Worry not, it is not hard to tack a Tiki but it is a different technique to a monohull as there is no keel to spin around plus the width means that they, like I suspect all but racing cats, tack slowly.  The way we do it is make sure she is moving nicely (i.e. you are sailing a bit free) push the helm over so that the leeward tiller is over the beam ends…See More

Robert Sheridan replied to Bart's discussion roler jib or hank on with a aditional reef on a tiki 30?
"We also have tried hanked and furler on our Tiki 30.  I had a hanked jib on my Hinemoa and liked it as when you let go the halyard it came down very quickly, the draw back was that it was flogging round your ears (unless you have a brailing…"

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
