A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
I know this may horrify some of you but I'm thinking of building a bridgedeck and cabin with 6 ft headheight on to uncompleted 9m wharram hulls. I realise this will affect windward ability but intended use is as a coastal cruiser and will fit big outboard. Has anybody else done this and what do you think ? Also what would one pay for two old hulls poss 6 to 8 years old (no rigging).
ps the cabin roof would be attached to the extreme port and starboard sides of the existing
hulls and rise up to 6 feet in the middle - a sort of half circle shape at the stern end and sloping down to a front beam at the bow end.

!! Looks like he is on a canal so the biggest danger is if he tries to drink the water !!

489 clicks on the discussion... Innes, this will be the record .....
Thanks for your photos - Brill :) and all comments. I will not be doing this project after all as the owner of the hulls,
has told me he is going to try and complete his boat next season. I really hope he does as its sad to see a half completed boat never hitting the water. The purist's among you will be pleased to know hes putting nothing in the middle, No cabin at all.
I will be building a brand new cat, not a Wharram, and not something like that boat on the canal LOL :),
won't tell you what but give you a clue its got an A frame rig. Will send link to photos on completion.
Happy Sailing folks
I hope some of the responses here were helpful. Of course the thread did wander ..they all seem to after a while.. I am very keen to follow your progress and may be in Scottish waters next summer. I have sent a friend request if you check your page it should be there...this will enable us to exchange e-mails. Best of luck...
Just used the "Edit" to google South Queensferry - E Coast....If I get there at all it will be W Coast ..Still not a million miles away...
Rogerio Martin -
Thanks for the photo of Tiki 31 Kahuna - It looks a lot like what Innes was thinking of ? And thanks for the other photos also always great to see the boats on the water and in use..
