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 was pretty busy the last couple of days so I didn't get to post about the nylon gaff slider I made. The gaff slider has been chewing up the mast and as I is made of white oak epoxied together it had split. The new one is now done. I made it out of a block of nylon scrap I got from a local plastics supplier. Nylon is hard to work with regular wood power tools as it tends to melt and gum up the works. Pictured above is the old and the replacement slider.
