Profile Information

I am:
A home builder, I want a Wharram, Other Multihull
What boat (s) are you building or do you own?
I am looking for a small wharram for coastal cruising here in Ireland, France and the UK.
Country, City, and State?
Cork, Eire'
About me or us?
Liza is Irish and I am a Floridian. Ultimately we are looking to buy/build a cruising boat for extended voyaging. In the meantime I would like to familiarize myself with the world of wharram.

Having spent six months in Hawaii helping to restore Mo'o Lele and to build Mo'o Kiha, I greatly admire the polynesian indigenous sciences.

At this point I have no preference for any particular design. I would appreciate any advice from anyone who has sailed the various Wharram designs. I must say that I am quite tqken with the Pahi Lines and the Crab Claw sail.

I do know that the CC design evolved to take advantage of the cleaner air higher off the water, and I do know that 42' Mo' Lele (shown in the Oct. 76 issue of Nat. Geo. is extremely fast - scary fast! While I really like the looks & simplicity of the CC design it will be performance that will win at the end of the day. I am of course most familiar with the Marconi rig. I'm thinking it will be difficult to beat a wing mast and High aspect sail plan. Can someone please convince me otherwise?

Wishing you all safe journeys and loads of those magnificent teary eyed, lump in th throat feelings of how beautiful life is and how fortunate we are to be living it to the max.

Looking to?
Go to a wharram gathering sometime this Summer 2010.

That was 2010 this is 2017. I will trade my land for a boat! seriously! This is the chance of a lifetime. Due your Diligence and you will arrive at the same conclusion. No Mains Electricity was available when I bought...It was only in the planning now it is done!
