sunfish rig on a Melanesia
1 Reply

I aim to try using a sunfish rig on my Melanesia? It looks like it should be a good combination to me. Someone must have tried this already. Any thoughts?  Continue

I've recently become the owner of a project tiki 26.loads needs doing & I could easily lend you the front beam, but it all depends on location.The boat is near Castle Douglas just now & I am near Forres ,between Inverness & Elgin,If you're in S. england there would surely be something nearer you,but let me know.

Ah well...
I have found Steve Turner to be very helpful in the past in connection with Wharrams in general & tiki 26s in particular ; he used to build them & still does surveys & modifications, I think.It might be worth asking him if he knows of any beams.
Put Multihull Surveys in a search & you should get him.
Good luck with your boat work.

Thank you for your "friend invite" John.  I am working toward a transatlantic crossing and at present I have a Lymington Slipway 5 tonner that I am going to put up for sale when I return to the UK.  Are there any in your circles who whould like to own a beautiful varnished classic double ender?

Best regards
