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

I worked on a couple of things today though my day was interrupted by a visit from one of my brothers. He was flying through on his way to Europe. We had lunch together, caught up and continued on our way.

I masked and did a first coat of primer on the cabin top and the insides of the cabin sides. It was about 55 F and 70% humidity so I was glad I am using a water-based, epoxy modified primer/paint. It will take a couple of days to cure but warmer drier weather should help this along. I picked up more fasteners for the attaching of the shear strake and some acrylic discs I plan to use to mount my solar powered cabin light below. These are cool as they have both white and red LED lights and are not very expensive, $16 each from Solight.

I may be adding stiffeners under the deck in the forward raised cabin area.
