tiki 38 weight and draught

Hi I know the weight is supposed to be 3000 empty and 5000 kg loaded and .75 m draught but is the .75 at 3 or 5000kg and has anyone measured to see how deep their boat actually sits in the water empty and or loaded.  Or where the waterline should be when looking at the topsides in relation to the chine or below the beams for example. Or how much weight it will take to sit the boat down another inch etc. My boat is lightly loaded and I haven,t measured but my impression is that it may sit deeper…See More

Good day Dave have been to see ur boat recently, she sits on the mub @ low tide in SHOAL BAY, AUCK, she is really gorgus. Luv the lines & the cabin across the deck. I used to have a Narai Mk2. Lived on her for about 2 years in Aust. new partner & I are lookin for a new boat to live on in the Phillipines, am contenplatin building a modified TEHENI with a center cabin like urs. are also possibly thinking of buyin second hand & rebuiling.
