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 could use some more clamps! Not that I want to tighten the pieces I'm gluing to the point of crush but it takes a lot of clamps to hold everything in the right position. The snow and cold are still with me so I'm wimping out to work in the mudroom instead of the shed. One key pointer, always dryfit your pieces first. I discovered a mis-measure wowee in the 6mm plywood piece that makes up the bottom of the front beam. Luckily it was on the big side so I scribed the true arc and glued the Doug Fir pieces to the correct line. This is where all the clamps come in handy. I've been using a few screws too; just enough to fix the critical points.
