Ideas for a cockpit tent - by Jon Walmsley

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.

Wharram Florida Rendezvous May 2013

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!
