"Hi Steve, I don't have yet experience moving a Tiki 26 by hand but I cannot imagine it more difficult than moving a 10 tons 35' steel boat with a 16' self made sculling oar. The Tiki has less windage and weighs just a ton. A 10'…"

"I don't think you could move a T26 with paddling or rowing  more than a few meters, and you need 3 people onboard, one for steering and two for paddling.  Another approach is the use of a yuloh or sculling over the stern. The yuloh…"

Paddling or rowing Tiki 26...works or not?

Hi all, how effective is paddling or rowing for moving a Tiki 26 around? I want to move my Tiki 26 less than 1/2 a mile in sheltered waters and my motor isn't ready yet. The boat is empty, not loaded up so that should help. Any particular method recommended?Thanks,SteveSee More

"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."
