A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
Hello. Ontong Java certainly is no a Wharram, but, James Wharram expressly welcome him and is friendly with the design, etc.
My question is if anyone knows why the hulls have different length?
And moreover, if such circumstance benefits in any manner the sailing ability.
I also see that the mast and the foresail are placed not in the middle but more close the the longer hull.
Thank you Michael. I understand he followed some ancient pirogues. I knew this article, but didn't find therein a specific explanation about the sailing performance, Tks Rds
