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

"Those pictures clarify your setup pretty well, thanks. One of my biggest concerns about Wharrams has been how they are so demanding when it's about slipway dimensions. Your sliding trailer with rollers looks like a clever answer to that,…"

"You can see the position of the rollers in the first picture I posted. Here is a closeup. Its just standard cheap rubber boat-rollers. I have cut them to the width I wanted. The bottom one carries all the weight. I think the inner diameter is 25mm,…"

"I think both Canada and Finland "suffer" from short sailing seasons, so now it's better to concentrate on making most of the current one. When you get the rollers incorporated, please, do write something on your blog or post a video.…"

"I agree - rollers  need to be part of the set-up. I would like to modify my trailer to incorporate them into the design. It likely won't happen this year - sailing season is short here on the Canadian prairies. "

"Thanks for sharing your experiences, Rod and Rune. The rollers sound like a solution to the waterline issue. What kind of rollers do you have on your trailer, Rune? I can't find any in the pictures above."

"Very nice Bo. I wish I had found your site before :) It seems we came up with more or less the same position on the trailer for the side decks. Have you launched the boat from the trailer yet? It looks like the side boards are bent against the…"

tiki 21 trailer

I have just built a ”sliding” trailer for my tiki 21.It’s inspired by the trailer built by Rich Hueschen of which I found pictures on this forum.When building something new you always look for pictures to get inspired by, so I thought I would contribute back with pictures of a few of the modifications I made.The sliding mechanism is just 50mm and 60mm steel tube.
