If you are a dreamer, a doer, a horizon viewer - come in! come in! Announce yourself and let it be known.
The seed of adventure has been sown.

The goal is to take this boat on a trip that no other Wharram boat has taken.
From Great Slave Lake in Canada's Northwest Territories up the MacKenzie River to the Beafort Sea
and westward to the Bering Sea and south to the inside passage on the Alaska and British Columbia coast.

I was just looking at the Tiki 26 for sale at http://www.yachthub.com/index.html?page=list/ed.html?de=17453. This is a really nice looking boat. Two things struck me in looking at the pictures. 1. I have a long way to go, a way long way! It is hard to visualize that what I am building will one day be similar to what I'm seeing in the photos. I am so focussed on the minutia of fillets, hatch cut outs and the like. 2. The other thing that struck me when I looked at the photos is how much the building process of a T26 is a from the inside to the outside process. It is almost as if there is no outside to this boat. For days now, I have focussed on finishing the inside while the outside sits almost forgotten, just bare wood.
