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.

Yesterday the bunkboards were bits and pieces. Today, I was able to dryfit all the bunks. Once I knew they worked as intended, I drilled all the fastener holes oversized, gave all the bare wood one last sanding and then a coating of clear epoxy. They will be ready for installation tomorrow with all bare wood now sealed. In anticipation of being able to move beyond the bunkboard level. I glued up the upper hull sides. I will let them cure undisturbed for a couple of days. If I am able to install the bunks and fillet them over the next couple of days I will be able to start installing hull uppers on Friday.

Hi Thomas

Really like the job your doing and your site, lovely to see a boat going together. Wrt fillets we used different diameter pipes to form the fillet, they were easy to handle and we could get the right sized fillet.

Thanks Dave. I do use different sized pipes to smooth the fillets once they are partially cured. They work well
