Wharram Builders and Friends

A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts

For those who want to mount an engine on a small Wharram here my solution: it was created even under way somewhere in Greece. I fixed a fitting 10cm by 10cm pice of wood rectangular under Beam 1 and 2. Of course Wharramlike only by strong lashings. On this I fixed the engine, turned it 90 degrees, so that the prop pushes in the desired direction (backwards!) So it operated rather like a front wheel driven car, pulled , not pushed. almost no cavitation. I so far only found one picture, where one can see it...

Hey there Meinhard,

Very cool solution, any chance of getting some video of it in operation?

Cheers,

Shaun

Hi Shaun!

Sorry to say that there are no videos, but I look for detailed pictures. The reason: Hitia  was built in the seventieth (of the last century!) and long ago she was sold... so keep on looking, as soon as I find pictures I post them.

cheers

Simple ideas are the best!

Hi Robert! Thanks for your reply! I found out that there are two mottos to be followed when building a Wharram (but not only Wharram) :

1) stick to the plans!

2) keep it simple! (as you mentioned!)

cheers 

Meinhard
