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.

Sailing south, tacking into a 20 knot head wind in Trincomali Channel we slipped between Reid and Hall Islands to see this fine Wharram sliding down towards us wing to wing. This was a new Wharram to us. As we approached, he doused his genoa to slow down and take pictures. An Ariki flying a Canadian ensign. Anyone know this boat? We were too busy tending to sailing for much of a conversation but took photos of each other. Soon he was gone to the north while we beat onwards to Montague hoping to beat the rain.

I think that the boat is the Ariki Piggy.

This is PIGGY. I built this boat 35 years ago in Vancouver's False Creek area and sailed her around the world to return in 1982. We now use her as a summer getaway and cruise mostly in the Gulf Islands. I'm glad to have 'met' you and have also taken some pics from our encounter. If you email me your address I will send them....cheers tom
