Thx! you're right, a lot of fun :P
sometimes I think the building process (with mistakes and satisfactions) will be better than sailing!
Thank you, Paul,
And your 26' ? Post some photos...
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.
