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 finally really got back at it over the last couple of days. Temperatures have been in the sixties and warmer in the shed so the epoxy sets quickly. I cut out assembled and installed the bunk boards and re-aligned the hull while installing the bunks. The hull appeared to have been tweaked by a quarter inch at the top of the bulkheads so I fixed this. The keel was still true to the stretched line I have under it. The bunk boards add a lot of rigidity to the hull so getting it straight at this point was key.

I got a comment for a guy (Jim) in Hawaii who is building a Tiki 26. I understand his pull of the break when its going off - surfing. I keep getting distracted by powder in the mountains and getting on the water. From the pictures you can see that I'm not getting distracted by my bikes as they are covered in sawdust! I can see carrying a board or two on my Tiki too - it will make an awesone remote access boat. There are some phenomenal breaks on Vancouver Island that I plan on surfing from my Tiki with my buds. I'm not a big surfer but am starting to go more. I use too surf kayak a lot at Tofino before it became a well known break. There use to be ten or so of us who surf kayaked there and two surfers, two guys from the states who came up to surf and to avoid the draft. Hey Jim what island are you on? I might be on the big island in April. I'd love to check out your boat. Send pictures. My email is tsunamichaser at Yahoo dot com.
