A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
I have just joined the site and wanted to announce that I have a Raka for sale. The short of it is as follows. As posted on craigslist-
It needs some restoration work due to rot, but all is above the waterline. In total I see approximately 3 4x8 sheets of 3/8 marine ply in the rot repair.
One crossbeam has rot on the very end that I believe could be cut out and fresh timber scarfed in to make that repair.
There is a fair amount of work required and this project is not for the uninitiated. That being said, if you are handy and had considered building a Wharram and believe you had the skill set to undertake the project this could be a very appealing alternative to starting from scratch.
This was a professional build and well worth restoring to whatever level the new owner sees fit.
The boat is stored in doors and un-assembled (cross beams are off). Each hull sits self supported in their own crude but effective cradles. Both hulls and cross beams will fit on a standard tractor trailer 53' flat bed and I can load.
If your interested in learning more, please send your telephone number and I will give a call and answer any questions and provide additional info.
Is this the same boat that sold in Delaware on Ebay?
Yes it is...
Can I post photos on the forum?
I am happy to email photos to anyone interested.
Will see what I can do here.
I have just added an album and uploaded 18 pics. I have many more and I am happy to send to whomever is interested.
Nice pics! I have a few friends who were interested in building... I'll point them your way as a possible alternative.
Thank you Brandon.
I am happy to speak with anyone that is interested, and it certainly would be a good fit with anyone considering building.
we spoke when you bought her on Ebay a few years ago. Is she still available? where is she located for inspection? phone cleveland ohio 233+2837 (bot defeating format, sorry)
