"I fixed exactly the same thing on my pahi 31! the insides of the curve up bits were not glassed, and moisture got in. also, the caps where screwed on, without glue, and that didn't help either I think.
I put a lot more glass over everything…"

About me or us?
Built my first boat a lath 'canvas kayak with my father 1964. I have been building, mostly to my own designs, as a hobby ever since. My last build was a stitch'n glue surf kayak one year ago. I am almost finished a rebuild and modification of my PAHI 31 which I built approx 20 yrs. ago.

When I'm not on the water here is what I am at - http://www.wmw.ie trad / folk music.
My apologies for my tardiness, to be honest I simply have not checked for any messages till now. Spent the whole year head down, bum up working on our Hinemoa, Mystery. Got her on the water for two weeks before flying to U.S. to drive Mule wagons for Christmas and now helping inlaws sell house. Yeay!
Glad you like the look of Tacenui Mae, it was love at first sight for me, If I didn't buy her I would have stayed with my Halcyon. There's a few Wharrams on the Exe an unusual Pahi 42 (on Scotts brokerage) built in South Africa with non lashed decks a pod and a rig like a big windsurfer. There's also a Tane that's in need of TLC hasn't moved in years but still appears to float.
Thanks GB. Nice to see another surf shoe paddler. I'm based in Exeter, UK and have been sailing a Tiki 21 this summer. I'm expecting to buy it in the coming weeks. I plan to take it out of the water for a refurb ready for next season. I'll find some photos. For the time being he's a video of our family day out.
