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.

I made great progress yesterday. I shaped the final expansion foam layer in the bow and stern and fit the decks. I cut strips of cloth for glassing in the mast web on the axial and taped the perimeter per Scott Williams' clean method. When all the prep work was done, I mixed up resin for the decks first - wood flour thickened and when they were in place, wetted out the glass on the web. The boat is gaining weight but it remains light and I think is below design weight. With glass on both sides of the bamboo strips, the decks and bulkheads in the boat has taken on a stiffness that will make paddling and sailing it exciting.
