Is this the correct way to tie lashings Tiki26.

Was just wondering if this is the best solution . Was concerned that the lashing crosses the loop in the bowline and could cut through with friction

Wind and for Tiki 26

Does anybody have experience sailing /installing the Wharram windvane on a Tiki26? I have bought the plans and after having sailed the Tiki for a season I feel I need a self steering system . I will also install a tiller pilot. Would be ideal to just have one on the rear 4th beam but it could be hit by a wave . Any ideas would be most appreciated. Cheers

bimmi for tiki 26

I would like to buy construction plans for tiki 26 or 30 . I would like to know if the 26 tiki can have a bimmi installed with enough room for sitting under when sailing.

I have had Phuket Siam Timber and Epotec epoxy bookmarked for awhile. Have also been looking around for some less expensive standard exterior glue plywood to no avail but then again I'm in the sticks half way between Chiang Mai and Bangkok. Was wondering what plywood and epoxy you are finally using after doing your research. I will be in  the market to purchase next month. Cheers, Rex

I had heard teak did not glue well with epoxy due to its natural oils plus it is a bit on the heavier side. On the other hand, I have seen a lot of teak here and not noticed any oiliness. Another issue with teak may be that clear heartwood is hard to come by. Mostly what I see in the thicker stuff is a lot of sapwood and knots. I will be headed to Bangkok in ten days or so to do some investigating there. Thanks again, Patrick. I am sure you must be excited for your upcoming launch.

I should have thought of this earlier. Are you in need of a trailer? I have a brand new long and wide one that might work for your Tiki with some mods. Has a 1350kg German torsion axle. Let me know if you want to see some photos.

Hi Rex is would like to see the photos what is the length and price and is it , or can it be road registered? Cheers Pat

Nice job on your Tiki. I enjoy seeing the photos. Glad you got on the water last season. I wanted to ask how the trailer worked out for you. I'm interested in trading mine for yours if you want a lighter trailer. Mine weighs about 250kg. Regards, Rex

At 7:29am on August 17, 2016, patrick lennon said…
Hi Rex. The trailer I bought works very well with my boat so I think I will keep it. How is your build going?
At 7:04am on August 28, 2016, Rex Echo said…

I haven't started on my build yet...major delay due to female companionship issues. I have that worked out now and after completing one carport (build space) last December, I am just now getting started on a new carport and concrete block storage shed for tools and materials in a different location. I should have that ready in a couple of months then I can pick up the softwood that I purchased last November from the supplier in Bangkok. All in all, probably about a year delay on the boat build start and since I will now build a home concurrently, the completion date is extended as well. No regrets though...still a happy camper.
