Thaank you for the kind comment Rogerio, but you are my envy. You are sailing! It appears that you have a great boat and a happy crew. Also looks like good sailing grounds.

Thanks for adding me as a friend. Glad to see that you're planning on a Tiki 30. The further that I progress with mine, I find that there is enough room to make a truly comfortable cruiser for two.

Been following your progress. Looks great. You'll probably finish before I do!

Thanks for the pictures.

I am going to install an Air Head on the riser at the aft end of the starboard hull.

We'll rig a curtain for privacy.

Ola Rogerio, gracias por la oferta de amistad. Y por el consejo, lo tendré muy en cuenta. Estoy siguiendo tu blog de construcciòn, muy bueno, y me va a resultar muy ùtil cuando comienze el mìo. Saludos.

Hola Rogerio, veo que todavía no has empezado tu mástil. Mira la conversación en "HITIA 17 - ALTERNATIVE MAST CONSTRUCTION", es la forma en que pienso hacer el mio. Cuál es tu opinión?

At 9:51am on August 20, 2012, Rogerio Martin said…

Olá Ricardo, este mastro do Hitia é mais dificil de fazer do que o do projeto original. E precisa de uma base na mesma forma do mastro. Já temos um gabarito em L com 10m para fazer nosso mastro como no projeto. Mas o masto do Hitia vc encontra tubos de aluminio T6061 de 4" com 6m no mercado, só fazer um pé e top de mastro.

Hola Rogerio, el mástil Noble no precisa de ninguna base especial, es "self-jigging". Una vez que juntas las partes el mástil se mantiene derecho por sí mismo. Una vez encolado el mástil toma su forma y simplemente le pongo apoyos por las dudas.

Pero si ya tienes armado tu armazón para hacer el mástil entonces es mejor que sigas adelante.

Anthony Collison Raka was made to be a little faster i had a friend in Florida who made 1 I was always ready to sail with hm and his wife,I envied his boat very much.its a little narrower less living space,if you want more comfort Tangaroa would be best between the 2

Hi Rogerio,
Thanks for your kind comment. Just had a look at your two boats, very nice, love the Melenesia, great colours and practical changes to original plans, looks really smart.
Cheers Trevor

Rogerio, can you tell me about your anchor, do you use a bridle, how heavy, how do you attach the rode to the boat etc.

cheers paul

At 5:34pm on August 6, 2013, Rogerio Martin said…

No I don't use a bridle, We build one suport, witch the same anchor size, in middle of frontbeam. I use 7,5kg Bruce + swivel + 10m of 8mm chain + 50m 12mm Three-Strand Anchor Lines

We build a chain box and all boat is fixed there in one big Heavy-Duty Open Base Cleat. This cleat is screwed with 4x 10mm ss screw in one big cross under the chain box cover. 

When we opt for this arrangement, the power was distributed between the two beams and the chain box

We have one suport for anchor and another for moring

Hello Roger. Thank you for you help . There are just a problem; I think a automatique translator was used, and it is almost impossible to understand the meaning of you comment. Never mind, anyway,I will stretch my English language. It could be better  in preparation of my futur trip
