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.

It is many small projects now to get the boat ready. Work continues on the cockpit box. Today I coated the inside of the seat boxes and gave an epoxy coat over the glassed cockpit bottom. The seatboxes will need to be sanded one more time and get a final epoxy coat. The cockpit needs some fairing to the fillets around the edge. I broke up the work day with a hike with my daughter to one of my favorite wetlands that is about ten minutes away. We spent a couple of hours exploring for turtles, looking at the duck families and studying the contents of the water for invertebrates. Afterwards we headed to Fisheries Supply to get more paint and some rigging supplies. We made up a short wire leader for the gennaker and the two bridle wires for the forestay. We were going to make up the other stays but they were unable to find the spool of wire for me to make up these. Somehow they had managed to loose a 500 foot spool of wire. Maybe they'll find it tomorrow so we can go back and make up the other stays.
