We had a big storm here in the UK last night. Unfortunately I had moved my Tiki 21 out of its winter shed and onto a trailer in a field ready to undertake a few jobs before launch. It wasn't tied down and the wind blew one hull right off the trailer. Somehow it all survived hitting a fence post on route. It took a blow on the cockpit combing.

Thankfully an hour with some epoxy and all seems fine. Just a few scratches and gouges to fill. I'll never leave it on a trailer unlashed again!

Oh no! I guess it shows how burly the Tikis are. Hopefully my new cedar deck will shed enough wind in offshore squalls this Summer so that we don't become a true (flying) magic carpet!
