"Hi Kim. I accidentally sent a friend request in order to send a PM. Sorry. I am building the Tiki26 trailer and I wonder if I could have some close up pics of the hinge design used on the four wings? I'm about a week from fabricating that part.…"

Oh my God! I'm going to delete it. I have not been able to get a photo in the profile box. Each time I did it I had to delete it. My son said he would do it and I didn't know it was there so big.Thanks, Kim, for the compliment. I like the colour-coordinated photo as a friend took it recently walking to the waterfall when we sailed to Great Barrier Island (on a monohull). But not that big!!!

Hi Kim,

Thanks for the message. Seems like I'm slowly getting the hang of this Wharram site..........this rainy UK weather certainly helps!!

Great to see you have the Wave dancer vid featured - I found it about 2 weeks ago and have been drooling over it ever since. Just poetry in motion!!

Been out sailing much lately?? Love seeing all the smart new mod-cons you add to Vaea. can I ask the meaning of her name??

Hey you didn't happen to save any pics of Gerald Winkler's tiki 26 deck tent did you? They've pulled the site down and finding any info on deck tents has been a real pain. I'm having one custom built for Element and I really liked alot of the ideas from that tent... Thanks!

Hey Kim.i see Whichard have brought out a new block called a soft block,what do you reckon?I was thinking they could be used up the stick, a bit spendy tho.

cheers paul.

Kim I do not know where I read it on the interwebs but somewhere it said that these blocks should not be used at a height?
