I will be leaving my Tiki 21 on a visitor's mooring for a few days. The buoy has a metal ring on top to attach the lines. The harbourmaster insists on a chain length spliced into a rope to prevent…Continue

Back in October 2013 when Gratitude went into her wintering barn for renovation, the spring seemed too far away and there was plenty of time for all the work. Come March, much progress had been made and a date was fixed with a friend for our sea trials.
I'd bought Gratitude, my first sailing boat, at the end of last year after borrowing her for a few test sails. There was a bit of work to do, but essentially she was sea worthy. As the winter wore on, the paint was stripped…Continue

The boat, a Wharram Tiki 21 called Gratitude, was finally purchased back in November 2013 from a friend. Kindly, he'd allowed us to borrow it during the summer. This gave us a chance to try it out, and for everyone to get comfortable with sailing. I was in no doubt, but my small boys and Monika don't always see adventure opportunities as I do. I always knew I'd love it.
We'd had several…Continue

Welcome Ian - we need a few UK + EU members for balance !! What boat have you ? Photos ?
Another surf shoe paddler !!
Loved the photos ...this is the real strength of a boat like this.. I remember as a youngster the constant "Sit Down".... "Don't Rock The Boat " etc...!!
I uploaded a picture of launch day for my Tiki 21. We have lived here for the last 4 years and it is an amazing place to sail. However we are very far north (on the border with Alaska) so the weather can be ferocious. The boat has preformed much better than I had hoped and with its' stability, shallow draft and speed has allowed us to go many places completely inaccessible to the average boater up here. I am building a proper mast for it as we speak as the aluminum pole was a temporary mast just to get me out there and I should have it up in a couple of months. Cheers
25yrs ago I kayaked in BC on the Fraser & Thompson etc, then up around Jasper and Banff. We went up from Vancouver as far as the Skookumchuk Narrows. What a place. I'd love to explore those coastal inlets. We wanted to drive up toward Alaska but changed plans when we found out how far that is. You are way up North!
I'm building a new mast in Alu and wood this year.
Ian, thanks for your kind comments. Hope to visit the UK and meet you in person some day!
It will be fun sailing with another Tiki 21, but I have to admit that I won't be sailing unless there is a decent forecast of wind. I've spent enough days of my life flopping about trying to get somewhere in no wind - I'm a bit picky these days!! I'd much prefer a good thrash down to Brixham and a lively surf home!! Nick Martin with his Tiki 26 may also be joining in the fun. Be great if we can have all 3 Tikis sailing!!
Hope to see you on Sat.
Hey Ian, sorry I pulled out. Would have been good to have had Tikis sailing together. I don't regret tho, had a good time seeing my daughter sailing the laser with her cousins. Hope for more wind next year!
Hi Ian I found this Tiki in Turkey when I decided to downsize two years ago -I have been keen on a Tiki for about 30+ years and have the mags to prove it! The boat was built to a very high standard by the bought it from (he lives in Fethiye). He keeps at his house and takes it to the launch and takes it home when I return. This the agreement when I purchased.
Here's a link to some photos
PS Still not downsized from my boat in Falmouth!
PPS Still finding my round the site to post replies !

All the best
