At first I bought an old mono-hull Etap28 to enjoy sailing. After a few cruises with our 3 teenagers, the life on board is appeared to be very difficult on a such little boat. So I thought why not to build quickly in one year a Tiki 30 in order to test the advanced junk rig (Swing wing rig) I planed to put on each hull of my Tiki 46 under building in… Continue
