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'm finished the bow fillet and glassing now. While the fillet was nearly cured, the heat from the large amount of epoxy sped up the process, I removed the form work. I smoothed it all out with a rubber spoon and denatured alcohol. I then pre coated a piece of 12 oz biaxial glass and layed it over the fillet smoothing everything out at the same time. I also added a breast hook. This is where the front hold beams will land. Wharram doesn't run these to the bow which seems a shame as they will greatly stiffen the deck and resist any flexing in the upper part of the bow. I have heard that the forward deck on some Tiki 28's feel disconcertingly spongy.
