Anyone know what the Tangaroa Mk IV beam is with the Design Improvement package 2?
The Tangaroa Mk IV beam is 19'. But with Design Improvement package 2 with Tiki style I-beams, does the the beam increase some also? If so how much?
The Tiki 38 has a 22'-4", so wondered if the Tangaroa Mk IV was widened some with the Tiki style beams upgrade.
Thanks Allen :)
I am mostly looking for more info on the differences between the Tangaroa MkIV, and various Naria’s. Am I correct in that the upgrade design shows I-beams that are lashed on top rather than through the hulls? This would make the inside space noticeable larger i would think?
I began with thoughts of a Tiki 30. Realized it would probably be too small (but liked the portability and stitch & glue aspect). Wondered about creating a Tiki 36 as the 38 seemed a little large/heavy/slower build/costly. Then noticed the Tangaroa and Naria options…
I noticed another thread you had on the Tangaroa and Naria Mk II. Have you made one? Would love whatever info you want to share on your choices and experience.
Thanks Allen. I’ll DM you with more Tangaroa questions after the ‘friend request’ goes thru ;) Would love to know more on the mods.
