"Hi Hans; nice to hear from you after two years; can you remember what size propeller ( and pitch) you had on Wakataitea? All I remember is that you said you would rather have two blades than 3...dennis"

"They haven't responded to any questions, but it is possible for 100mph winds to lift up a multihull with a solid deck between the hulls and toss her. Hobie cats are notorious for this even in normal thunderstorm winds and have to be anchored…"

I have several fotos taken on my iphone 4s, but never figured out how to upload to the Internet(born 1941 - building 48' cat full time)Anyway, I just found out today that there's an upside down approximately 28 ' Classic type Wharram, but with the hollow beams and lashings, only 200 yds from my front door. It is located at the East end of the Goodland Boatramp Park; apparently blown over from bow to stern(!!!) up and impaled on the dock walkway. The owner has (apparently) already contracted…See More

Hello Denis

The biplane rig of my previous Tiki30 don't need foresails and its windward performance were the same as a cruiser mono-hull.

Hi Bertrand.  Your English is AWESOME!!!!    I  am sorry that I had not informed myself about what was going on in your world before launching my naive inquiry (a few days ago) about your Swing Wing rig: NOW I know that you launched your PHA  46 ft , (after 13 years work) in the meantime : Congratulations!!! I know how it feels, having done the same for my Tangaroa in 1978. The pictures of the wishbone intimidate me: what will you do in a hurricane? It's too complicated for a cruising boat.       If you ever come to the Caribbean let me know; I can help.. dennis schneider

Hi Dennis

we haven't started building yet since i am slated to stat after we return from AU and NZ which should be around july or so. i do have a mill set to cut the dimensional i will need and we have the ply and epoxy lined up. its just a money making game at this time. this is not my first go round with boat building so things should go pretty well. we are almost done with my fathers 26 foot fishing boat for alaska so the next in the hopper is ours. should be fun.
