Spinnaker for Tiki 38
3 Replies

I've decided I need a spinnaker..."Kattu" may be sensational upwind,  but not so much off the wind.  The plans don't show any dimensions;  I would like to know if any Tiki 38 owners have figured out…Continue

Fouling on rudder lashings
7 Replies

Your video looks terrific. Great inspiration on a rather bleak winters day here in northern NSW, Australia. Well, bleak for us Aussies anyway - yesterdays epoxy didn't cure fully overnight - how bad is that...! Cheers Klaus

Hello Alf

A few days ago we were in FatuHiva and now we are waiting in Apataki to put our Tiki46 on the ground for a few days to check the botom : little damage on one skeg and to add anti fouling paint where it is missing.

What is your plan? Us we stay here about 2 weeks (very nice if no north wind) and we'll continue to Tahiti and other leeward islands before to continue to the Tonga and New Caledonian.....

Hoping to have the pleasure to meet you if we cross our routes.
