5 Replies

I bought a tiki 21 this summer. Its generally in good condition. I did notice that the beams needed some new paint, but when I got them into my shop, it turned out to be a little worse than expected.…Continue

"I guess its a tube. I was told it used to be a spar on an old Americas cup boat. its surprisingly light. I think you are right that the sides pieces are less than 10 kg. My central platform is also built a bit bigger than per plan. It holds fuel…"

"wow ... carbon mast sound good. Is it a tube or a real mast? I rebuilt my platforms as they were rotten. I built a bigger engine box to take a fuel tank and lower my Honda 5 long shaft to prevent cavitation. My platforms are made from 6mm ply…"

"Ian: Yes the engines is too big. I would prefer a 5hp. But this on came with t boat when I bought it. Its not 90 though. I would guess its around 50kg. About weight: I think the hulls are more than 90kg. My tiki is build pretty much per plan, but I…"

"Timo, no, I don't think the beams are 40 kg. As I said, I don't know the weight, but not that much."

Timo replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion overloaded tiki21
"Thanks for the numbers, Éric. If each of the beam weights around 40 kg, platform (18 kg) + plain mast (18 kg) + rudders (14 kg) + beams (130 kg) + hulls (180 kg) make up boat total weight (360 kg). If this is correct the beams are pretty…"

"One marine plywood sheet, 6mm, is 12 kg. you need around one and half for the platform. My wooden mast, 25 cm longer then the plans, before epoxy coating, paint, blocks and cleats was 18 kg. Rudder I don't know, but my guess would be around 7…"

Timo replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion overloaded tiki21
"I have wondered, as each of the hulls weights 90 kg and the total weight of the boat is 360 kg, where does the second half of the weight come from (360 kg - 2 * 90 kg = 180 kg)? Approximately, how much do the rig, the beams, the platform and the…"

"I think the netting is most useful when considering offshore passages as wave slap up hard on the underside of platforms. Not so much an advantage for inshore / lakes etc. and quite convenient with camping. The weight of my platform is not…"

A storm had crossed Denmark the day before, and there was still some wind and a lot off current, but the boat behaved just fine.Second day was nice, and…See More
