The seed of adventure has been sown.

The goal is to take this boat on a trip that no other Wharram boat has taken.

For a moment there I got impatient. I forgot to remember slow-time, maƱana! There I was last night thinking I'd be installing cabin tops and decks sometime soon. Like next week. As I stood in the shed this morning, wearing a silly hat and a pair of flipflops (the temperature has doubled and we are back to mid-fifties), I started howling at myself with laughter. What was I thinking? I have all that gluing, filleting, taping and finishing of the upper hullsides before I can finish the inside for shelving, paint and buoyancy foam and that doesn't even consider the need for dryfitting deck beams and stringers. ...........Oh and if you are building one of these, don't forget the multitude of hullside doubling plates for shrouds, deckbeams etc like I almost did.
