A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
Thought it might interest you. this is my latest freehand sketch of a shunting proa I want to build. Is a wave piercer canoe with a tent stretched over it. Is an outrigger 25' long, design to go fishing to the Great Barrier Reef in north Queensland AU about 30 NM from the coast through nasty short and steep chop and camp in the lagoons overnight. The rig will be a crab claw made with 2 bamboos and tarp material all made cheaply at home.
Nice sketch, be most interesting ro see how it turns out in the flesh, and by the wat there is a yahoo discussion group --proa file-- which covers these sort of craft. Would be good to have some input there from someone outside of America,
Very interesting - please keep us informed of progress.
