If you are a dreamer, a doer, a horizon viewer - come in! come in! Announce yourself and let it be known.
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
and westward to the Bering Sea and south to the inside passage on the Alaska and British Columbia coast.

Lunch time so I thought I'd show the mornings work. I have now made all the Sitka Spruce parts of the mast. Next I'll make the plywood and hardwood bits. I set up my long "workbench" for ripping the mast cant strips and the two 3 1/2 inch sides. This involved the removal of a pane of glass to my basement windo. Luckily I hadn't replaced the glass pane yet. I still have the plywood plug in. The Sitka Spruce is remarkable wood, light, flexible and strong. I can't wait to see how it performs as a box beam/mast.

Setting up the ripping workbench.


It starts to rain - coffee time.


All the long bits made!
