Marc. That's not my boat, it was my first experience in a Tiki. My wife and I flew from Rio de Janeiro to Florianopolis in southern Brazil to sail on the Tiki 26, a friend. I am starting to do the shopping wood for a 21
Marc you are 3 or 4 months in front me...I'm close the bunks of the frist hull now. And start another hull in next week. Your finish is much better then my. I still don't like my finish level. One ask: where your toilet ?
Thanks for the compliment and for reminding me that I'm still building a boat. Been so busy trying to stay afloat, that I haven't been able to work on her for months. The fillets are wood flour. Maple, purchased from Raka
Must be the the photos, it turns a dark brown in the epoxy. Seems to make a good, strong joint.
so what I ment tosay was thanks for sharing knowledge thru pics.What is your thoughts on interior finish .Is that varnish topcoat or would you roll a final coat of U.V. RESISTANT epoxy and call it done?Maybe both/
ThankYou Mark could not have done it had I not had your good pictures to go bye plans seem really pretty in adequate in a lot of ways. Your pictures helped me a lot what do I do next let's see some pictures of your progress
Are your inboard blocks higher than your outboard ? I'm beginning to think I should just hold off on this whole process until I get the beams made and see what I need in order to make them all mate up together.
Yes Mark I see!! actually I hadn't even noticed that the forward Beam is curved on the bottom.This would complicate things even further. I must keep my magnifying glass close at hand ,and Remember Mr. Wharrams helpful words of advice about holding very tightly onto the saber saw and not sticking your fingers in the way of the blade as it goes up and down! Did you build your forward beam before fitting it with Deck block?
Hi Mark looks like you're going to be a launching soon. I am puzzling over the tabernacle full-size patterns in sheet#4 --I am wondering if most of this mysterious construction kind of telescopes into the mast---two side layers of 12 mm hardwood with the grain going up-and-down and one layer of16mm layer I don't understand what they are talking about here can you help me
