"Hello Steve-  most of the people (UK) I know use Basic Boat Insurance  www.basic-boat.com I use it myself also, it's 3rd party only and cheap, and they don't ask stupid questions. Re comprehensive insurance, my thinking was when…"

"Hi, Eric and Delphine, ah, yes, now I understand. A clever idea. I'm now looking at the possibilities of a bipod or A frame mast - seems to have some advantages such as being able to move the tack of the sail fore and aft. One of the good…"

"Hi , I mean that I will remove the top of the sail to lower the center of the sail area. The polynesian people unsew the strip at the top of the sail to reef.. I will do the same but instead of sewing and unsewing, I will use a zipper."

"Hello, On Anuanua, we attached the sail tack at the foot of the mast, like polynésian people did for their ocean-going canoes. The spars have to be straight for easier way of building and repairing, and they would be cheaper. Also when you…"

Crab Claw Tiki 26

I'm planning a Crab Claw rig for my Tiki 26 and have some questions for those with experience, especially Hans Wakataitea. I'm not trying to beat Bermudan performance, just make a good basic, affordable cruising rig. 1) Best method of attaching the sail tack - directly to the bottom of the mast (Wakataitea) or with the tack forward of the mast (Ontong Java) ?2) The angle of the sail spars and the plan shape of the sail at the tack - 60 degrees (Wakataitea) or less ?3)Curved or straight edges to…See More

Stringalong 1992 Tiki 26 restoration

Stringalong, built 1992 in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, UK, spent most of her time around the Thames estuary based in Essex, recently abandoned in a boatyard, lots of her parts missing, finally just two surprisingly good hulls and two not very good beams now in my hands.I'm on the trail to find out her whole story, to restore her to full sailing fitness and to enjoy all she has to offer. The man who built her, a Mr A Fielding, did a very good job, it's plain to see that his work was careful and…See More
