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.

My friend Stu came over today to help me mask the hull striping. To get it looking good took several hours - all afternoon actually. I burnished the tape to the hull, scuffed up the paint and painted stripes in black. I like the way it looks though I've toned down my original design some. I've done so as it looks different in 3D.

I'm now hoping to launch the boat next week. I'm not sure which day but if you are in Seattle, I'd love some help. Send me a message in the comment section. The plan will be to load it one evening and get it in the water the next morning out in Ballard. I'm hoping to do this on weekdays to avoid the weekend boat traffic.

One thing that I've figured out is that the Tiki 26 is pushing it as far as a trailer sailor goes. Everything is just beyond the limit of being easy to handle. I did start building the two wheeled dollys for moving the boat today. I'm using handtrucks as the platform around which I'll make the dollys.
