Tiki 21beam repair
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

Rune M. Christensen replied to Steve Burrage's discussion Apology and redirection... Engine options on Tiki 21 in the group Tiki 21
"It would be great to see some pictures of your setup :) I would like to build some kind of dodger myself. I'm not sure about the engine setup. Is your central platform built to plan? To me it seems that most of the problems with water splashes…"

"Thanks, Rune.  I have mine set up pretty much ready to go (minus the mast) and just pay the $1/day for a extra wide load permit (here in Canada), which works well for short hops, but to trailer the boat to the Sea of Cortez would not be easy at…"

"Hi Steve and Rod I think we assembled the boat 3 or 4 times last year. It varies a bit, but I think it takes 1- 1.5 hours for me and my 15year old son (usual crew) - if there is now unusual complications. That is with the sail already on the mast…"

"I will be interested to hear how long it takes for Rune to set up his Tiki. Last year, I only set up the Mana once, and then left it assembled on the trailer in the marina parking lot each time I sailed. So I haven't had enough practise to…"

"Great trailer! Can I ask how long it takes to set up? Do you use the straps instead of ropes for the lashings?"

Timo replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion tiki 21 trailer in the group Tiki 21
"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,…"

Rune M. Christensen replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion tiki 21 trailer in the group Tiki 21
"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,…"

Timo replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion tiki 21 trailer in the group Tiki 21
"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.…"

Rod McLaren replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion tiki 21 trailer in the group Tiki 21
"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. "

Timo replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion tiki 21 trailer in the group Tiki 21
"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."

Rune M. Christensen replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion tiki 21 trailer in the group Tiki 21
"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…"

Rod McLaren replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion tiki 21 trailer in the group Tiki 21
"In response to Timo's question about waterline and launching ramps, I have already experienced issues with the sliding trailer and my  Mana 24. I used a trailer that was built for a pontoon boat and I am sure works fine for that…"

Timo replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion tiki 21 trailer in the group Tiki 21
"Bo, your trailer looks great too, and your blog has a new follower since today! Rune, I must say then that the Danish standard trailers suit pretty well to such projects. :) I find T21 sliding trailers cool because they seem to make it easier to…"

Bo replied to Rune M. Christensen's discussion tiki 21 trailer in the group Tiki 21
"Looks great! I came up with something very similar after getting inspiration from this forum also. I have some details here: https://www.monarisa.org/2019/02/21/trailer.html"

"Its a Brenderup boat trailer. Danish brand, but I think its pretty standard. I just dismounted the normal boat rollers and used the mountings for the sliding pipes. Yes, the the rear light and number plate can be pulled out so that the boat…"

"My boat lives on the water. However, in two-three years, I will need something like that. Will I be able to do it is another story. Good job, thanks for sharing."
