"  Choice of  a KD 860 over a Wharram (say a Tiki 30) does nothing for getting around the problem of wide beam and marina berthing. As well, the 860 is going to require 5.6m space for  all the time you own it, whether in the building…"

"What are your thoughts about the Tiki 38? Have you considered the T38 for your build?  And if you considered it, but chose not to build a T38, what are the reasons for not choosing this design?"

"1. The plans are inadequate 2. The support network is very small 3. Disposable/consumable materials are not usually calculated in the cost to build. For larger boats, this can easily climb into the 5 digit category 4. If you do not have extra hands,…"
