"For Godness sake build the biggest boat yo can afford. The Wharram building system is so simple that a big boat is just as easy to build as a smaller one.  Go for a Tehini if you have that big family. We, (that is 4 people), built a Tehini in 4…"

Hello Josh,

at this point it looks as if I will be able to keep it. I have sent Boatsmith some videos of the project and am awaiting an idea of what it might cost to have it finished. If that doesn't work out I will try to find a another builder who would be willing to complete the project. Sorry!
