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??

Cheers

Rory

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?

Hey Kim, I have been looking at your double mainsheet arrangement again. Interested to know how the set up has worked for you ? Also can you possibly let me know how i could have the same system as yours but cheaper?

Hi Kim

I am looking at setting up a similar double mainsheet system on my catamaran that is rigged with a Tiki 30 mainsail. The video that you had posted on youtube seems to no longer be available. Is it possible to see this in action again in a video. Also, down the line how have you found the double mainsheet to have performed? Still happy with the decision to remove the traveler system? Thanks.

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. I have a design already in mind but it would help to see what was originally used.

Thank you!

Neil
