Moving time for Dan

This is the moment we all wait for, the only day that beats this one is the actual launch.

The weeks of planing and phone calls all come together on such a day, the skill of local crane drivers becomes vital on such a day.

With a Wharram Tiki 38, there are twice the number of moves, this may not affect the final cost on the day as often we pay a minimum call out of aroud 4 to 5 hours anyway?

A great shot of Dans Tiki 38 on the road to Simonstown Naval Base, Dan will soon be sailing in those nice warm and clean waters!

 The pictures were supplied by Dan and his friends, click on them for a larger view.

Inside the SA Navy base at Simonstown, Dans handiwork seems dwarfed by a Navy vessel.

The Tiki 38 is on a dolly, it can be moved and will be the next day, check the blog for those pictures tommorrow.

The Wharram Tiki 38 for Dan started as just the materials, then later the plys were CNC profiled and we can now offer a large part of this design as a kit. Plans are from James Wharram direct.
