The seed of adventure has been sown.

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

I'm working on everything right now. The beams are coming along well, I've started gluing up the tillers and the tiller bar and I've got the panels and bulkheads ready for assembly for hull two. It's a lot to manage working on so many things at the same time but a checklist helps. Limited space means I have to spread out so yesterdays good weaather helped as I could glue up pieces and stick them outside to cure. Unfortunately I got a couple of runs on the bulkheads but I'll sand them out before I assemble the lower part of the hull. Today I'll do a little work but mainly I have to get ready for a kayaking trip I'm taking in the Baja. It will be nice to get south into warmer temperatures. I just updated the spreadsheet I'm keeping on the cost of the project. I just crossed the $10k point. That includes sails, some hardware and almost all the epoxy and lumber for the hulls. It will be interesting to see what the final cost will be compared to what I estimated. I've added a few things since then but I think I'm pretty well on track.
