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 returned to the shop today, It's been too cold to work out there but today the temperature came well up so I put in a good afternoon on my bamboo surfboard. The bottom is now glued up and the stringer/rail template and board shape templates are done. I was going to make the rails in cedar but after redrawing them with a neutral shape as opposed to rail up or rail down profiles and sitting on an upturned bucket with a cup of tea I decided to try for laminated bamboo rails. These will be harder to make but also more consistent with wanting to make this board out of bamboo. If the glue and bamboo has dried tomorrow, I'll rough finish the inside of the bottom of the board and start in on the stringer and the webs. It's good to be back in the shop!
