Building a James Wharram designed Tiki 21 catamaran
Tuesday, January 22, 2013
I guess we have a cold front coming through, because it topped out at 43 degrees today and will stay like this until Friday. As a result, I didn't do any epoxy work today. I did, however, get all of the bunk bearers sanded down (corners rounded). I am going to glue them on tomorrow and let them cure downstairs in the epoxy room. Even without the heater our house stays around 60 degrees inside. I also drilled out all the holes to get them ready for filling with thickened epoxy. Since it will be cold, I have decided to go ahead and cut out some smaller parts like the tillers, tiller bar, gaff, hardwood pieces (beam end cleats, dolphin striker, etc). We'll see how far I get before I get fed up with the insidious table saw!
All nice and sanded
Here's an idea of the room in the forward section of the bunk! I took a solid hour nap in there. There aren't many pics out there of the actual cabin size of a Tiki 21, so here you go!
