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

The morning was spent with seven first graders on a wetlands field trip. The aquatic plants are just starting to emerge and life in the local wetlands emerging. It was great to get out on a sunny morning and muck around looking at plants, the signs of beaver chewing on trees, turtles sunning themselves on a floating log and a catfish stirring up the bottom as it was feeding in the shallows. I look forward to further exploration of this type from my Tiki. It's about the awesome experiences that this planet holds if you take a look around that motivate me.

I got back to work a little after noon. I had set myself a list of tasks and got after them right after having a bite of lunch. I sanded the back of the cabin tops cut out the hatch opening, routed the edge and coated the exposed wood. I drilled the remaining holes in the rub rails, removed them, cut them to length and routed a larger chamfer on the upper edge and coat these too. I sanded the remaining parts of the cabin interiors in preparation for priming and vaccumed the hulls in prepartation for priming. With any luck I may be able to start painting the interior of the hulls this week. That would be a milestone!
