to many wharrams rest in a boatyard

we spend the last 12 month sailing from the Philippines to Thailand. we meet a lot of wharrams on the way.... sadly, 80 % of all this boat are in pieces and resting on the hard.we saw in thailand: 1 pahi 50, 2 tiki30+, 2 tiki46, 1 tiki21and in the Philippines 1 tiki38 out of order... we spoke to some (new) owners, the boats where not old, 5-7 years old but often for many month "out off order..."what is it with this wharram community? do we like building, fixing, playing with new construction…See More
