"SV Satoshi, yes, that is the book I was referring to. If you have never built anything out of wood/epoxy, I recommend it as a resource. I have an older copy but I believe it has been edited several times since then. Downloading it would ensure you…"

"If you don't mind a suggestion, another portable power tool that is good to have is a router. This being a catamaran you'll need 2, 4 or more copies of the same piece, so what I do is cut one and plane/sand it to perfection, then use it as…"

About me or us?
My name is Marcel. I'm building a Wharram design Tiki 38 catamaran. Tje Tiki 38 is capable of longer voyages and ocean crossings and that is also what I am going to do when I have finished building it.

I see myself living modestly on a beautiful sailboat that I have built with my own hands and know inside out.
Looking to?
Building and sailing my Tiki 38
