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.

A long day of working on lots of things. I made a list first thing and promptly threw it away. This is no time for lists, it's time to get work done!

The tillers and tiller bars are now finished with the carpentry stage. I need to finish some epoxy detailing work but otherwise they are paint ready. That by the way is my pressing goal; to get everything paint prep ready by next Friday. It should be doable. The beam pads are finished other than for the locating blocks, the hatches are ready to install. The forward beam was finished today and the aft beam should be done by Sunday. I need to get the tension wire for the main bean then I can install the flange on that beam. The beam seats for the extra stern beam are curing as I write so they'll be done tomorrow. So the big task is the cockpit which is coming along nicely as are the seat boxes. This will all be an integral unit which makes it harder to transport as it will be 97 inches by 78 inches or 8'-1" by 6'-6" but not impossible

There's still hope that I'll launch in a month. I need to get rigging and sewing tramps and the likes.

All my clamps at work!

Running out of space. Cockpit curing upside down with seat boxes curing on top.
