We are delighted that the Seapeople Magazine is now available to all. Thank you Bill and Houston. Look forward to the even earlier Sailorman magazines to be added in the future. Wharram.com will do a feature on it very soon.

Hi Bill and Houston,

I understand from information in previous posts that you own the Tiki 26 folding trailer featured in Kim Whitmyres photos and have published the measurements. If they are available would you mind explaining how we could view the measurements?  We are trying to design a scaled up version for our Tiki 30 so the measurements of your trailer would be a great help.

Thanks also for all your work to make the "Seapeople" available to us all.

Regards, Rob.

Hi Bill:

  Do you still have the Hitia 17? A young fellow in Denver is looking for one. Have you launched Scott Williams' Tike 26? Bill

Hi Bill- greetings from S Colorado!  I am hoping you are still on this site and still have those trailer plans available.  I'm building the beams for my Tiki 30 so there is a feeling that this thing may actually have a completion date...  

Did not realize until reading above that you are the mastermind behind the Seapeople PDF project- great work!  Last week I just dug out my 8 or so hard copes to reread....
