Biplane keel stepped masts on Tiki 38

by Tom Vogt
(ft mill sc)

We are building a Wharram Tiki 38 and really like the idea of a junk rig.

We saw pics of same vessel 'Aorai' with a Biplane keel stepped junk rig and the owners loved the freeing up of deck space, as we also like this idea.

Now, I am having a problem trying get exact feed back on how to accomplish this correctly.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Tom Vogt

Junk Rig Resources

I'm not sure how old this thread is, but I thought I'd share that, as of Feb. 2016, we are in the process of re-rigging our Pahi 42 with a side-by-side junk rig for ease and safety of short-handed, off-shore sailing, and for the enormous amount of space on deck that will be freed up.

Our main technical resources have been the "Practical Junk Rig" book by Hasler and McLeod and the Junk Rig Association website (junkrigassociation.org)

Good luck on your build.

Best,

I suspect that he has simply treated each mast as if it was an unstayed mast on a mono hull.

Hi Tom,

I took the above photo of Bertrand Fercot’s "Pha" at the start of the Jester Challenge several years ago.

I was going to point you at his profile on the Wharram builder’s site but I see you have beaten me to it.

But I’ll add the links just in case anyone else is interested.

Unfortunately there isn’t much info on the actual build.

Have you tried contacting him through the junk rig forum on yahoo?

And some photos from robhosailor here.
