I'm again and again surprised, how beautyfull our "working machines" look!
I work here in Switzerland near a very nice lake and my Tiki is far away. To bad!
So I just bought a Virus Turbo II Skiff to get now and then on the water and do something for my
deteriorating fittness. Fair winds always... Wave
I'm italian, but I'm working in Switzerland too, in Lugano :)
I'm building a tiki 21, hope it will be ready to sail for august... you're picture symbolize what i'm dreaming about my next summer navigation!
"la piguse" is now in south france, well builted in switzerland in 1982, navigated around mediterranean sea with several navigators but in the same family, greece, corsica, mallorca , north africa , cap verde ... the owner ,builder could,nt navigate any more for different reason but wanted piguse dancing again in good hands, i bought it for very few euros in exchange to respect this family tresor ,so i keep the original name and hope to keep the spirit of the owner navigation , simple , cool way . the last sailor (nephew) wanted to cross atlantic to caraibes but stoped in canaries due to urgent family reason . the boat came back to europ in container ; it is in that state i got it ,with every thing inside for long passage , maps ,tools, rot food ! salt included , i discover all that inside the hull with weird feelling... and i expect to complete and more the interupted voyage ...
i like the polynesian style of pahi , it is question of taste . it is pity small pahi doesn 't have same succes than tiki . due to the bad comportement with old rig ? i read this rumor here and other on some post but now glenn tieman ( who inspire me in his way of life and sailling) emphasize a lot in many post on forum of the improvement of the tiki wing sail rig . the conversion is imperative . i hope tikiroa , small pahi will gain new builders and happy sailors...
