"Michael, I'm right here in Eastern Connecticut if you want to chat.  I had a telescoping trailer built and the local welder who made it could certainly make one for you too from the same plans (less measuring and figuring so it would be…"

"I so appreciate the responses! I’m in Massachusetts, so most of the places I would launch would be boat ramps. With all the privatization of beaches I doubt there are many I could launch a boat off of. There are tons of marinas and the option…"

"Hey Michael,  I launch my 21 solo all of the time. It takes me about an hour and a half to rig up, and a little more if I lace the rear trampoline on.The mast is easy to raise (both my Tiki rig mast and 29' Nacra race rig). I built a…"

"Hi, I have assembled and launched a Tiki 21 single-handed - using a telescoping trailer. It took about four hours to assemble and launch and same for retrieval and disassembly. The hardest part is raising the mast but I used a gin pole and tackle…"

"Thanks, Jeff. Yes, I think I have literally seen every video about Tiki 21's and Hitia 17's I can find. I  have seen two guys launch the T21 using dollies to maneuver the hulls and to actually launch it. Young guys of course. …"

Can a T21 be assembled single-handed?

I'm reconsidering my T26 build as I think about the issue of assembly for launch.I love the T21 design, and wonder if that would be easier to assembly by myself? I don't want to do some fancy telescoping trailer and I'm thinking about dollies... Or should I go with a Hitia 17 and be certain I can do it all myself?See More

Lee Dilkes replied to Michael Cook's discussion Epoxy Materials List in the group TIKI 26
"Hi Michael, generally with resins 1Kg = 1 Litre. Fillers: you’ll need Qcells (white) which are light and inexpensive and phenolic micro balloons (tan). I usually make a mixture of the two which wets out easily. Qcells are very light and take a…"

Epoxy Materials List

Anyone worked through the list? I’m trying to price out the project but few of the part numbers match current West System price list and the “pack size” in kg is wicked confusing. Are Microspheres (no longer sold by West) the same as Microlight? Any help out there?See More
