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 finished my horizontal fillets. I have discovered denatured alcohol --- smooth fillets with little effort. You rough out the fillets, let them cure for a few hours and while they are still malleable you rub them with a cloth (I'm using painter's canvass) soaked in rubbing alcohol --- presto perfectly smooth filets. While I waited I started working on the deck beams, lateral and longitudinal. I'm making some of the laterals out of left over 18 mm plywood. I finished the stern deck area and started the bow. The bow will be tougher as it needs to work with the deck hatch. Tomorrow.
