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

Last day of May. I have a month on the self-imposed clock! Again it was hot today. In the eighties. I got the tillers glued up first thing this morning and will leave them until tomorrow late before I pull the clamps. Hopefully the bends will remain and hopefully they will fill. I made them snug as I didn't want slop in the tiller to rudder connection. The last part of the rudders will be installing the cheeks that the tillers rest on. I likely will need to get some more wood for these as I'm running out of useful scraps.

The other big project today was gluing up the cockpit box. I added a cant strip around the interior bottom edge so there are no corners to hold sand and the like. I'll fair over this strip to get a clean look. My plan at the moment is to permanently attach seat boxes for storage such that the cockpit sides double as one side of the seat box. I've made the cockpit wider than the plans call for at 52 inches which leaves 13 inches per side for the seat boxes. The top of the boxes will have operable lids so that you can store stuff here.
