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

I worked on many things today and I worked a really long day. Because of the warm temperatures, I did my epoxy work early and late. I coated the cabin on H1 starting at 6 am and I work until about 1120 pm gluing up the mast. It took a great deal of work to get glue everywhere and the whole thing fitted together well. Then checking that it was not curved was another task but I think it's pretty good. I've got it set up on a perfectly level and plane surface so it should be good. I used a string line to check it but you never know. I won't really know until I take it out of the significant restriants I have holding it all together.

Fitting the last pieces


Dry-clamped


Clamp madness from the bottom


Clamp madness from the top. I've also got rope would around it and then further tightened with wedges of every sort.


Serious mast bondage!
