Hi hans,

I can see from your pictures that you have a wharram windvane on your boat. Am I correct?
I am currently building one for my 38 and I would like to have your feed back about it. Mine will be center with trim tab on port rudder which seems similar to you.

Beautiful 38 you have there.

Thanks in advance,

Hello Hans,
nice Tiki, I especially like he tent over the pod, do you have any drwaings or sketeches of it. I am planning a similar thing on my tiki 38. I want to have the tent streteched out to either cabin entrance that in bad weather in port I can get from one to the other without making a mess down below and getting everything wet.
Regards Björn
