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.

Today I set the remaining molds to the strongback played around with the final squaring of the molds and purchased 200 splits of bamboo to strip plank the hull. These I got for 90 cents a piece. I figure I'll need 120 or so to do the hull. I planed them as well as I could to 3/16 and did a test staple onto the molds. I've set the stem frame and have the material ready for the stern frame. That will be layed up later tonight. Tomorrow if all goes right I'll start planking the hull. I also got two 18 foot lengths of bamboo for mast and boom. This boat seems to be building itself.
