Old habits die hard.

"Mate Heat it over a fire,make sure you drill a hole in each segment.You can use a plumbers blowtorch as well.Wipe away the residue. I then epoxied the bamboo and varnished it.Looks great and lasts."

Thx! you're right, a lot of fun :P

sometimes I think the building process (with mistakes and satisfactions) will be better than sailing!

I've been doing a bunch of repair work this spring and thinking I should blog about them.  I've had few issues.  a piece of wood rot because I forgot to epoxy all of it kind of like a cavity.  the oak I used has been a problem, it doesn't like epoxy and the biggest one - my mast step knuckle shearing off.  Noticed while sailing, dropped the mast, built a deeper knuckle and recessed it into the maast step plate, screwed and glued.  Overall maintenance hasn't been huge.  Now for things I'd change?  the biggest is watching out that you don't go adding more and more stuff on board.  In the Pacific NorthWest good ventilation and a cockpit tent are key because of the rain.  I'll write more later.

I started out as a 50% owner, with me doing the building and a mate putting up the cash, he bought out my share so the boat is still in Durban.

Hi Paul,

A mix of the practical and aesthetic. Increasing the volume of the cabin allows the bunks to be raised giving some extra stowage as well as more room in the sail locker. I also prefer the way it looks aesthetically, I always liked the look of the Tiki 28 and of course "Cooking Fat". The blended deckline is common on other Wharram designs, so I am not reinventing the wheel but I may borrow design details from others of the Tiki range just as I would from other builders (with acknowledgement and gratitude of course). As far as I know nobody has done this mod on a Tiki 26, I think it would be worth the effort, research and additional build time.
