S.Pacific horror

"This photo is from Pt Vila, and the Wharram does appear to be in 46' range, but is a classic design I think. There seems to be enough of  a boat to salvage....Sad to hear about the Sanyasin's demise, but glad the family is…"

"Absolutely devastating. I heard today that the Tiki 46 Sanyasin was completely destroyed in Port Vila along with 90% of the other yachts. Luckily the owners and their small son made it ashore safely after having to jump overboard and swim to shore.…"

Classic Wharram Group

Not PIGGY.

"Chaffing gear on mooring lines is ESSENTIAL.  The first year I ever owned a boat, I saw a whole beach cluttered with dying boats after a storm caused them all to drag moorings or chafe through mooring lines.  I took that sad lesson to…"

Waiting on the tide

"Hi Brad. Our intention is to sail directly to Hawaii and then on to the South Pacific again, so barring some unforeseen misadventure we won't be heading your way. What are your plans when you take over your new boat. It's built in Florida…"

Waiting on the tide

Waiting on the tide

"Thanks Robert. 35 years ago we added these balanced trim-tabs. They are very powerful and work extremely well in all conditions. The wind vane is off right now getting painted but usually sits in the pedestal just beside the ladder. "
