The seed of adventure has been sown.

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

How time flys. With today's heat, I started early. 5 am early and then I finished late 11 pm. That's a solid days work. I got all the beam pads cleaned up except I forgot one, which I had hoped to coat tonight so now I'll have to tomorrow. I got the tillers fitted and the pieces cut out already to glue. I was going to do it tonight when I discovered that the deck I had the tillers clamped to, to work a bend into them, was flexing. Oh well there is always tomorrow. Early this morning I coated the insides of the cockpit panels so this evening I stiched everything together and glued the sides to the bottom. Onwards. My plan is to use cant strips around the base on the inside with a fillet to finish this off. The inside bottom is glassed as will the outside (all of it) be. I finished the extra aft beam which will sit on the rear deck and be the aft end of the aft tramp. I don't know what else I did. It was a long day!

Does that really say 11:07 pm!

Late night epoxy work. The temperature in the shade hit 85 today.

I took the time to clean tools and misc stuff off the hulls. It didn't last long.

Fitting tillers
