The goal is to take this boat on a trip that no other Wharram boat has taken.

I was busy today! Despite the cool morning temperatures I ploughed on. First I worked on the main and aft beams making all the knees and butt blocks. I've shown my way of drilling the limber holes. I trimed the over hanging cloth from the glassed fairing for the front beam. I glassed it before I install it. This will be my technique for the other beams too but in this case I will do all three parts, web, bottom and fairing. Once I had the beam knees and butt blocks cut I glued up the web and bottom for both beams. I had a little lunch then launched into final coat on the one side of the hull. I got it on its side and mixed up a near quart of white pigmented mix. This I spread out and then back rolled. It looked pretty good but once I tipped it out with a brush it was mirror like. I think I've got this side where I want it. A light sand with 220 cloth and then a sprayed coat of two part primer and I'll be on my way!
