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.

Technical fact - It was pointed out to me by a chemical engineer that an epoxy boat might not fair well in the cooler temperartures of the Arctic. I checked with the chemists at SystemThree Epoxy. Silvertip maintains its strength to -50 F with a safe working temperature of -30 F. It becomes brittle beyond -50 but only while the temperature is that cold. My plan for Arctic exploration in my Tiki does not call for use during the winter months.
