    This is Richard Winn's boat that is nearing completion. She is another Tiki 38.

    And so the lines on the floor began to take shape.

  • v13

    And before long the mating thing did it again and a second hull was born. Chris is the builder looking surprised at what his efforts have produced. Pallets have proved to be invaluable.

    One up one down. Filleting is the order of the day after fairing etc...

    Detail of the join I used in the capping planks, quick and easy to make on a table saw with the edges of the planks clamped together.

  • v19

    You're not going to believe it but another hull on the way!! I am the pensive looking fella wondering where the best place to put the heads is going to be.

    Depth sounder transponder, my solution.

    Depth sounder transponder, Gary's solution.

    Whilst we have been busy in the warehouse, Lourens has been building again, this time a Tiki 30 which is quickly taking shape in his back yard.

    This is Lourens' Tiki 38.

  • v26

    These views give a good idea of what the modification looks like. I intend doing the same save that there will be a slight radius of the flat top sections of the coach roof.

  • v28

    This is Gary's Tiki 31.

    In the beginning there was a floor and a pile of plywood and timber and plenty of enthusiasm to get started.

  • v5

    And it came to pass that the strongbacks were made in the form that the drawings required.

  • v7

    And to the strongbacks were mated the bulkheads, which begat stringers ....
