How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( email@example.com ) for the full details.
G'day Dean, unfortunatley this did not happen with the Teheni hulls. The project stood to long and got wet rot in the hulls. I am in the process of buying a new boat also in my picture albums ORO with a center cockpit, this has no mast so the intention is to Junk Rig her. As original plan. I will keep an eye out for your Build as well. Fair winds.
Dean, project has basically stalled due to work and family and the fact the boat is fine the way it is. A gaff rigged wing sail is stupidly easy to use. I only have two winches on the boat for the furling jib and even then most of the time I don't use the handle. Twin unstayed masted would reduce all the rigging and lower the mast height to keep the same sail area. To keep things simple and easy you basically need as small a boat that you can live with. I recently skippered a seaweed 1160, great boat but 12mm ropes everywhere and electric winches to handle the loads.
I would still like to convert my tiki 30 to a biplane cambered balanced junk rig but need to stop working on other peoples boats first. I sew and repair canvas and sails, so the sail making may look daunting at first but if you make a small test sail first its fairly straightforward
