Beat and Beatrize's Tiki 38 set for launch

Beat has moved his hulls to the waterside in preperation for launching.

He has parts scattered around and we left our job a liitle early so that we could come by and help muscle the beams and cockpits and the pod into place.

First we installed the beams and then lowered the pod down.
Handing up the spars for later installation.
Below the crew gathers for a group shot.
Happy captain
The launch is scheduled for dawn on Sunday the 21st at the launch ramp at the San Leandro marina. It will definately be a momentous occasion.

Boatsmith's Pacific Coast Facility

August 18, 2008

We needed to transport ourselves and our tools to California for a big deck job. We also needed transportation and office space while we are in Alameda working.Sort of a base.

As long as were at it , why not some walls, and howsabouta roof.

This southern yellow pine t&g was leftovers anyway.

Some lexan windows and a teak faced door and some shingles,

Presto, a genuine old hippie wagon from back when.
Currently only ROUGH interior bunks and dinette with a little air conditioner and a shelf for a small generator.

This rig brings out a lot of smiles. way cool
