Tam Dl replied to Tristram Cheer's discussion 4 mariners, dog rescued after boat breaks in half
"Rot is common to the design, and I have just cassually read of several people who have had to replace their beams.  It is also a design issue as several of the design types deviate from best practices, where beam rot is concerned.  I…"

"I would only believe that, which I had seen, from the JWD team.  The reality is almost everyone deviates from the plans, and almost none of it gets approved, so most people think of modified boats as stock.  But the degree of modifications…"

Tam Dl replied to David Ryan's discussion Construction of a Pahi 63 MkII underway at the Montauk Catamaran Company
"Are you the David Ryan who had an interest in Bolger boats for a while?  If so you certainly get around on boats.  The 38 is very pretty, I am sure the 63 will be exceptional."

Tam Dl replied to James Ryan davenport's discussion 25hp on tiki 30?
"Friend put a 25 hp on  a T 46, it was also a reasonably clapped out 2 stoke.  I didn't hope for much, but the thing ran at considerable speed.  I don't see a problem on a 30, they run those things on tiny skiff, so long as…"

Tam Dl replied to Tam Dl's discussion What about a CLC Kit?
"Thanks for the thoughts.  As far as the order of complexity issue is concerned the 31 foot proa is considerably more complex than a Wharram, and to bring it to market some of their recent kits include hundreds of pages of step by step…"

Alex replied to Tam Dl's discussion What about a CLC Kit?
"It seems that JWD have beaten you to this thought - the new Mana24 will be available as a kit/CNC. From the Wharram site. CKD in south Africa have a partial CNC solution for the tiki38 too. I guess it depends what your time is worth as to whether…"

What about a CLC Kit?

So I was thinking about this, I think it would solve several major problems:1)  A CLC kit would eliminate the problems associated with rampant materials substitution, and improve resale on ply boats that generally sell second hand for very poor prices.  Part of the reason for that is that people make substitutions and redesigns.2) The Tiki designs are basically 40 years old, and there has been huge change in ply boat tech since then,  A kit would professionalize what has hitherto involved a lot…See More

Tam Dl replied to Ann and Neville Clement's discussion best decision we ever made while building Peace IV
"Robert nailed it. The bottom line is you have to know what materials to use, and what techniques to use.  And even if you are really smart, you don't know that stuff until you have had a boat for decades.  This is one place where the…"

Tam Dl replied to Axel's discussion Value of a partially built Tiki 38
""I do not want to sound discouraging (because your boat is much closer to completion), but there was a Tiki 38 in California that was 35% complete with 100% materials to complete the wooden structure (no rig, engines, cushions, etc.) and he had…"

Tam Dl replied to matt connolly's discussion Engineered beams?
"There are a ton of reasons not to do it.  Like that the beams are engineered to carry a different kind of load. do not have the curved shape, etc...  Can theoretically be succesfully wested if the sections of the lams are too thick. Before…"

Tam Dl replied to Axel's discussion Value of a partially built Tiki 38
"My idea of 3/4 built would be two complete hulls, or maybe more.  I think that has some serious value.  I would contact a specialist Wharram broker, as they can add a lot of value for the 10% or whatever, they trade for."
