These are pictures of the cockpit tent on Tiki 28 Nr.5 Pakljhawa, but a similar tent can be made for other Tikis. The main four attachment points are the aft shroud shackles and the rear cleats. All four clear windows are zipped to allow entry and ventilation. The poles are 16mm fibreglass with the steel ferrules replaced with stainless. The whole thing rolls up and goes in a long zipped bag which fits across the back of the boat on top of the aft trampoline. It takes me less than five minutes to put it up.

I'm after a Pahi 52 or maybe a Tiki 46 preferably in Europe.
We are a family of 6 looking to go cruising for a couple of years if anyone has opinion on which might suit us better.

After 8 years and many wonderful adventures, our changed circumstances dictate that it is time to pass Catknapp on to the next adventurer.
Catknapp has been our partner, home and workplace, including 5 years whale watching and researching in Tonga and conducting marine conservation work in Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands.
Catknapp has so far sailed over 25,000 offshore miles around the South West Pacific - including 5 return passages from New Zealand to Tonga, New Zealand to Vanuatu, Solomons, PNG then Australia, Australia to Vanuatu, Solomons, Vanuatu then New Zealand and this year, New Zealand to Vanuatu. She has done many more coastal miles.
We are currently working with www.oceanswatch.org engaging with local communities and assisting them with reef monitoring and conservation.
Catknapp will be in Vanuatu until mid-November when she returns to New Zealand. There is a possibility for new owners to continue working with OceansWatch in the South Pacific.
Catknapp is in overall excellent condition and has no outstanding maintenance issues beyond the usual ongoing maintenance, such as anti-fouling and general wear and tear to be expected of an offshore cruising vessel.
We are open to all cash offers.
Please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or (for brief enquiries) email@example.com
Because we are on project there may be some delay in replying so alternatively please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be able to reply immediately.

We will be holding the Spring Wharram Rendezvous (a Hui Wharram) May 17-18-19, 2013 in Islamorada, FL (Florida Keys) at the world famous Lorelei Cabana Bar.
A “Hui Wharram” or “Hui-o-waa-Kaulua-Wharram” (Hawaiian) is a group or gathering of Wharram boats. There is no easier way to fulfill your sailing dreams – from sailing the trade winds or the local shores – than with a Wharram Sailing Catamaran. Wharrams range from 16’ to 63’ and are mostly home built of plywood. Stable, rugged, fast, FUN, comfortable, inexpensive to build, operate and repair!
Come, see and enjoy the boats. Just have fun. We talk about Wharrams and nearly any other boat. We tell sailing stories…some may even be true. We compare notes. We share pictures. We look at plans. We take pictures of each other’s boats and get some really good (and a few bad) ideas. We eat and drink and just have fun. Bring a boat if you have one but everyone is welcome … no boat needed! FREE! No registration, no costs, no plan (a perfect Keys event!)! Join us for a Dutch-treat dinner on Saturday night at the Lorelei…lots of door prizes!
For details send an email to email@example.com

Here are some photos of my Hinemoa design Cat. I bought it in 1998 in very rough condition and spent six months bringing it back to life. I sail it from Morro Bay California in the estuary and along the coast from Port San Luis to San Simeon Bay north. I made two trolleys for the hulls and have trailed it as far as Mulege Baja Mexico where four of us launched and beach camped for three weeks as far south as Porto Escondito. We found the boat a perfect match for this kind of trip.
1) On the beach in the back bay Morro Bay
2) Getting ready to assemble and launch Morro Bay launch ramp
3) Ready to leave on Mexico trip.

The slightly inebriated young Pohnpeian exuded, "You guys are the best! You give money. You guys make the world spin! All the money. You are the greatest, you are the ones who do it all! Giving so much money."
Just a stranger on the street of Kolonia, and no, I personally didn't give him money. The capital of The Federated States of Micronesia runs on easy American money. Only ten years ago there were exports, bananas, black pepper, and, for generations, copra, but not anymore. Today the Micronesian drives to his office, entitled "Office of Development and Resources" or some such thing, a few times a week; plays solitaire or Facebook for an hour or two, and his paycheck buys everything he wants. Please read my essay on this very important subject at:
Still Pohnpei is a pretty ideal place for me at this time; everything I need is here. The scraggly, free-spirited tropical port town sprawls almost randomly over a richly jungle clad, steeply ridged peninsula with the sparkling wide barrier reef-bound lagoon glimpsed through the foliage. On a dry day it rains five or six times. This cascade tumbles down streams and rivers deeply cut into the black basalt bedrock of the island and nourishes economical fresh local island food; several varieties each of taro, breadfruit, limes, bananas, cooking greens, coconut, etc. Free tuna, wahoo, and other by-catch from the factory ships, salted and dried by myself, for my daily meat. There are oysters by the hundreds on the nearby shipwrecks. Thrift shop clothes are nearly free and, for boatwork, most supplies are in the hardware stores. Cheap wifi in the well stocked library. And since roughly one third of Micronesians reside in the US I can, as an American, stay here with a minimum of harassment from the immigration office. Still none of this explains why Manu Lele's been anchored here for two years.

Dear Mr Wharram & Ms Boon;
I have a story to tell.Twenty years ago, in 1992, my late partner, Fred Prussing, built us our Tiki 26 in Coromandel, New Zealand.(she took 9 months, like a baby) We made passage to Fiji and in 1994 we imported her to Fiji. Sadly in 1995, while cleaning her bottom my sweetheart had a stroke and died (at Musket Cove). The following year you made your first trip to Fiji and commented on how beautifully built our "Kitten" was. I was so sad when I heard this as Fred would have been thrilled by this.
Since then I have visited as often as I can, given that I live in Canada. Each time I visit, dear "Kitten" has deteriorated further. What I'd like to ask is do you know of anyone who would be prepared to take on her resurrection, here in Fiji in return for being able to sail her in Fiji waters, which as you know, are delightful. I am now 76 years old and was the navigator, not the sailor.
I need to know, before all, do you feel that a wooden boat of this age IS salvageable at all and if so can you help me find that very special person I seek-I could pay some money toward materials.This is a shot in the dark as I must return to Canada, leaving Fiji on October 27th. If I walk away from her in this state she will definitely be doomed. The resort owners, who have let me keep her here at Musket Cove since Fred's death, now would like to pull her out of the water after I leave-would she not be better off in the water? (barnacles and all) Sadly the resort owner, Dick Smith, died at the end of July, after a long illness.
When "Kitten" was damaged by hurricane Gavin in 1997 I contacted Hanneke Boon, who very kindly sent the specs for her damaged hatch cover, which a friend replaced.
Sorry for all the detail-I can supply pictures of the damage if you need this to make a decision-she is extremely sound below decks and I hate to give up on her.
Wharram lovers are a very special group so I thought I would go straight to the source, as Fred was such a huge admirer of your designs
Thank you for your indulgence (I'm using a dear friend's computer).

On arrival in Satawal we were received by the three chiefs of the island, in the main "men / canoe house". After having shown our respects by bringing them presents: piece of cloth, cigarettes, rice... the spokesman tells us that we are welcome and can stay as long as we want. After a few exchanges, the chiefs ask us if we could sail with some people of the island on board our boats (we travel at the moment with Ingo and his boat Mahuini) to West Fayu, 75km north-west, for them to catch fish for the 500 people living on Satawal island (big job guys!). Satawal doesn’t have a lagoon; the ocean is right behind a small reef, which surrounds the island. West Fayu is, as one might say, their food (and tobacco) supplies reserve....
The next day as the weather is good, we take the opportunity to make the journey. The two boats take 3 persons each. In the afternoon we arrive in West Fayu’s beautiful lagoon. During the night, a canoe also made the trip, loaded with 11 people on board, plus 2 pigs ... in 15-20 knots of wind. They will remain a few weeks on the island.
