"I thought so at first too, but when I briefly met Brandon and Daniel, as well as Dan at the event I found out they had exchanged names as well as vessels :)"

Jonathan Van Vuren commented on boatsmith's event 2015 Wharram Hui in Islamorada
"I'm excited to see some Wharrams! Looking to possibly build a Tiki21. I may bring my outrigger canoe - not a Melanesia but inspired by that and the Tahiti Wayfarer."

Tiki21 cabin top bench

I saw this in another thread concerning the possible issues with the wingsail in the rain, and wanted to ask some questions about it without hijacking that thread.I really dig that cabin top bench. The Tiki21 has spoken to me for many years, and I'm in a spot in life where a build is possible in the garage, and he could live in the canal behind our house. Two things with the Tiki21 have usually dampened my enthusiasm for jumping in setup time from the trailer and lack of more comfortable…See More

Jonathan Van Vuren replied to Brandon Gamble's discussion Who's coming to the Spring Wharram meet in the Florida Keys
"I'm so close! but every year something big has come up recently. This year we have a baby coming at the end of April! I'd really love a chance to see a Tiki 21 up close, I think that may be the vessel for our little family. Perhaps next…"

Profile Information

I am:
A home builder, I want a Wharram, Other Multihull, Other Monohull
What boat (s) are you building or do you own?
Melenesia - plans have been great inspiration, will knock one together eventually.

Ulua - my outrigger canoe fixation was inspired by the Melenesia, but I really love building in strip plank. 98% there - just need to do some finishing and build the sailing rig.
Country, City, and State?
USA, Merritt Island, Florida
About me or us?
I have been lurking around the Wharram site, and other blogs and sites about them for almost 13 years. During this time I have build several small boats and canoes (stitch and glue as well as strip plank). I love the process of building from dreaming to enjoying the product with family and friends.
PK78 - 8' sailing pram
Light Sculling Trainer - as kayak per Hannu's Boatyard
EasyB - 12' cedar strip canoe - per Duckworks
Ulua - 18' outrigger canoe in cypress/cedar strip
Currently sailing an Islands 17 (similar to Tanzer 16)
Looking to?
I have been sticking to small boats due to life and space constraints at first, but have found quite a bit of joy in building many smaller projects. A recent move to the east coast of Florida has rekindled my desire for a larger vessel. The Bahamas aren't that far away, nor is a trip to the Key or 10,000 islands. Perfect playground for a Wharram Tiki 21, or 26, or 30, or 31, or the Amastasi, or maybe the Tahiti Wayfarer, or perhaps the Tikaroa...
There will be a coastal Wharram in my future. I will be watching here for good advise and ideas.
