Robert replied to Steve Denton's discussion Importing a Wharram Built by Gunther Nutt or Andy Smith
"I imported a Wharram last year. It's really not difficult. You do have to pay a 1.5% import duty. If you're a US citizen you can fill out the paperwork and pay the duty at any cargo customs office. Non-citizens have to hire a customs…"

"As others have said, it must have been made for a reason, but we don't have that hole on our Pahi 42. Main problem I have with that compartment is that it gets a bit humid as there is no air circulation. I've been thinking to put a small…"

"I would just fit a rubber plug from the inside and inspect it regularly to see what happens."

Budget Boater replied to Robert's discussion Stern drain hole
"You should be able to close up the holes. But I imagine that they exist for a reason. Is there any way for water to get into that compartment - either by rain, wave, or seas? It's location makes be believe that water (or something else) was…"

"I don't think so. The inspection hatch is too small even for little portable bottles, and propane was stored elsewhere on the boat. Is there any reason I shouldn't just close up the holes?"

Budget Boater replied to Robert's discussion Stern drain hole
"Was the compartment used to store propane bottles? Any leaking propane, heavier than air would simply fall out of the hole."

Stern drain hole

I'm still getting to know my recently acquired Pahi 42. A few mysteries remain. One of those mysteries is the drain hole in the compartment at the stern. This is the area adjacent to and aft of the rudder well. There is an access hatch in the deck, as shown in the plans. That part is clear. What I don't understand is the drain hole at the waterline in the rudder slot. I don't see that hole in the plans, and I don't understand why we want to let water into the compartment. I open the inspection…See More

Robert replied to Andy Best-Dunkley's discussion Autopilot for Wharram cat - tiller or wheel?
"I bought a Pahi 42 last year that came with a number of self-steering options. I haven't used any of them much at all, but the previous owner did extensive single-handed sailing with them. The boat has a hydraulic helm with a cylinder attached…"

"We'll be sailing our Pahi 42 in the Florida Keys January-March 2017. You're welcome to sail with us if you'll be in the area at that time."

Robert replied to Graham Anley's discussion What type of rig for my Pahi 42?
"I am a very new owner of a used Captain Cook, so I have very little experience of my own with the boat. The previous owner completed a solo circumnavigation on her, so I can say a little about how he set up the boat for his purposes. The mast was…"
