Oz Wharrams? (almost my time to shine)

I've been lusting after a Wharram of my own for decades. Some of you may recognise me as a serial pest from the old Wharram forum (you can run, but you can't hide;-) I may be getting made redundant…Continue

"Hi mate LOL about the weather there. I always imagined it being hot all year round in that part of the world (must be all the westerns I watched as a kid). Must be a bastard trying to get epoxy to go off.  As for wetting my canoe's…"

"Hey Scotty, I'm jealous about the weather; here in Santa Fe, NM, I'm getting excited when the temps get anywhere 5C so i can go outside to work without having to wear jumpers and jackets. Not as bad as further north but with me being a cry…"

"Hi Shaun Thanks for the observations. All quite valid and duly noted. At least here in my home waters, I will be using a large channel (Ettalong) to access the ocean, and is quite protected/safe. So the shore breaks shouldn't be too much of an…"

"Hey there Scotty, You're right the Tri will be a more stable platform, but the single outrigger gives more lessons; examples being, if you miss judge wind/weight bias - you get wet (in a fun way), a more detrimental example is coming onto shore…"

"Hi Shaun Wow, thanks for the detailed reply. That's a huge help (and very motivating). I'm looking forward to seeing your photos (however long it takes to post - lol). I reckon it'll be awesome to see how your completed Wayfarer will…"

"Hey Scott, Yep, we use a Crab Claw, albeit the smaller of the two within the design. My tests so far have shown both plusses and minuses. On the plus side is obviously the simplicity, both in construction and use. One significant issue for me to get…"

"Hey guys. I know this is an old thread, but does anyone have any new info/experiences/sources on these rigs? I'm keen to have a go at setting up something like this rig on my Ulua build. Thanks all. "

"Thanks Shaun, and I'm really looking forward to that first paddle someday.  I love the Tahiti Wayfarers. I even seriously contemplated building one of those first, when I still had delusions of becoming a wannabe Glenn Tiermann with a…"

"Hey Tom. Just wanted to say thanks for the inspiration with your excellent Tsunamichaser blog. I was forever drooling over it, and you're largely to blame for my (currently half) Ulua build. Cheers mate. "

"Hey there Scotty, Good to hear your world is turning well for you now. The Ulua is looking sweet, well done matey! We understand fully about life getting in the way, Casey and I took our Tahiti Wayfarer, Wilbur, down the Sea of Cortez for a couple…"

"Hi there Shaun. I don't know if you're still out there, but is you are, then so sorry for the late response. I did get your message, and checked the Pahi out, but I wasn't yet in a position to be able to do anything. I thought…"

"Hey there Scott, Thought you might like to know there was a Pahi 31 for sale at Lemon Tree Passage, Port Stephens. We looked at her in 2010,ish, just before the big floods in Brisbane. We very nearly took her but our situation changed and we missed…"
