Wharram Builders and Friends

A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts

Stringalong, built 1992 in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, UK, spent most of her time around the Thames estuary based in Essex, recently abandoned in a boatyard, lots of her parts missing, finally just two surprisingly good hulls and two not very good beams now in my hands.

I'm on the trail to find out her whole story, to restore her to full sailing fitness and to enjoy all she has to offer. The man who built her, a Mr A Fielding, did a very good job, it's plain to see that his work was careful and skillful. I am certain this wasn't the first boat he had built. He did a thorough and thoughtful job  and stuck to the plans except for a little extra strengthening of the aft deck - as far as I can see. A lucky find was a letter he wrote to The Sea People magazine on her completion. If anyone has any information about her, please get in touch.

Lots to do, but a sound basis on which to work. A long time ago, I wanted a Tane, many years later I have a Tiki 26. Excellent.
