HI Randall,
The thing about Jacque's boat moving was the spirit of the thing.... just such a grand feeling throughout the group of folks. Jacques is a careful guy, the stuff he built was plenty strong, and he did have almost everything he needed just sitting around there at the farm looking at him. All the friends were careful but adventure oriented folks, and there was plenty of beer etc to go around. One hell of a party! Ann and Nev

G'day Randell and thank you for the info, however it was Gary who asked and as i said allready i have two on the aft beam tempery fitted. The clamps have allreay rusted and i as will be doing and refit, i will be following the plans, as my boat is an tanenui 28, i am still waiting for the plans to arive. In the mean time i joined this to find info regarding the tanenui 28. You said about rigging time?.. In my experiance, even you know how to rig up an boat, i owened an trailer sailer 22ft my first boat, it took me the same omunt of time to rig regardless of what i tried to do to shorten the process, it tuns out the same even with more peopole helping. It is the way the rigging is set up in the first place. I think it is better to leave the boat rigged up in the water and take it out for an hull clean. Do you have to leave your boat out over winter? Dose your yacht club have dry storage? If so, then you could put longer cross beams on the trailer and leave the boat at the club. Ps sorry for sending the last one accednely short before. I am still getting used to this.

Thanks Big Tane. I live in New England, so the boat needs to come out of the water every winter. I could pay for dry storage, but the ability to launch, retrieve, and store it myself is one of the things that makes the Tiki 26 an affordable boat to own. One could argue that the two days I spend rigging and de-rigging each season are days I could be earning money, but it's still financially and mentally advantageous!

Hi Randell.
Thanks for the reply.
That is abslutly right. Owen the boat thats most affordable and keep it as simple as possible, expeculy if 1, you are on an low budget like i am. 2, if most of the time on the water, you are single handed like i am. As is i am in both catagures, i am rigging my boat for as ezy as possible, whith as much comfort possible l can get. I think in all you will only get all of those requirements up fron 26 ft the other reason i bought this boat is that its 28 ft and the hulls on mine are foam core.
