A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
i am designing some changes for my Tiki 38 , basically a new roof for the cockpit, add a freezer,renew the cockpit itself, and many other minor changes.
Does anyone have CAD or 3D Sketchup drawings ? I think it would be good idea to have a detail bank accessible for everyone that owns a tiki or has legally purchased the blueprints from James or not built boats. I do respect JW work and copy rights (I am an architect myself) , but my intention is about something different.
Have all planned in advance in drawings would help to have a better final look. And avoid costly building times later.
I am willing to collaborate in drawing the entire boat if someone else wants to join to the project. I think that doing this in Sketchup ( a free downloadable Google program) would make this more accessible for everyone. But we should only share those drawings with the proper people that previously owns a boat or have rights to build a new boat and JW would be not affected in his rights. In any case those drawings won't have construction details.
Hello Alex , I am a designer who works on yachts (not a NA). I mostly work on sports fishing yachts but I am a wharram fan. I am sending you a redering of a Ariki I did last year. I am extremly busy for the next two and half monthes but if you can wait I can probably help you out...Kevin
I have not seen many "stock" Wharram's Alex. The photos of yours that I have seen seem to be one of the closest. Kevin is a very skilled designer artist with whom I work with regularly.
i downloaded yopur drawing but was just a photo. do you have the original in a drawing program? maybe i can manage to upload it to Sketchup .
yes i got many things done in my boat. i am cruising the caribbean now in Luperon/dominican rep. right now... but i would love to have more information about you. please write me to my private mail firstname.lastname@example.org ........... cheers, alex
