Forestay Bridle.

Hello. Well I hit an immovable object with my tiki30 the other day. It did rip the port side forestay Ubolt right out of the bow stem. While inspecting the damage I noticed the wood was damp inside.

"When I made my tiki 30, I considered using the sensor inside the hull, submerged in liquid petroleum jelly, our hulls are made of wood and the sonar is not affected"

"So I tested the tow fish and it worked perfectly. At slower speeds I dropped it down about twenty feet in fifty feet of water and got beautiful Chrip sonar images. I added some frayed poly line on the cord/strength cord to dissipate the air bubble…"

HI Chris, I love your tramp. I am thinking of emulating it on my Pahi when the time comes. Can you tell me something about the webbing and how it is attached to itself?

 

Regards

 

Bill

Did you weld it yourself? How? How did you get it coated in vinyl?

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Chris, how do those beam lashings you use work out? I'm looking for webbing straps, but did not succeed to find suitable and also affordable ones yet.

Best regards,

Jeroen
