Tiki 30: Getting Started

The crew at Boatsmith looking over the Tiki 30 drawings and getting ready to start layout and cutting of parts. From left: Nicolas, Pascual, David, Tomas, and Alejandro.

In the shop the night before construction begins:

A stack of 6 and 9mm Ocoume marine plywood for hulls, bunks, bulkheads and decks; and some nice, clear vertical grain 8/4 Douglas Fir lumber for milling out stringers, clamps, beams and other structural components.

Using a Makita mini circular saw with a 4-inch blade for precise control in cutting out the curved hullside panels.
