to many wharrams rest in a boatyard

"have you tried moving the hulls individually, then put them together in a boatyard? also what about a flatbed lorry with a hyab, like a builders merchants lorry. just a thought"

Hi John, we have finished re-building and NikNana has been in the water and frequently used since early last summer! Having said that, I don't think you ever actually "finish" there are still so many improvements, modifercations etc that I can think of, luckily, my Dad is retired and spends a couple of months in the summer living aboard and tinkering away!

As soon as I get chance I'll measure up the Aluminium pole for you but NikNana is larger then yours (34ft) and not built to plan. I'm sure the cross beam is actually a peice of mast as there is a slit all down the inside where I presume the sail would normaly slide into, it's a good idea because we fed the trampoline netting into it, nice and tidy finish.

Good luck with the re-build!

Hi John, how u doing, yes I am trying to get sum1 with a long flatbed to help me. This as I say, is proving difficult. I will be moving them separately. We have a friend that has a big farm, that is lettin us use a section behind the barn, I will then build a cover over the hulls so that I can keep workin thru winter. 

Thanx Iain

PS gud luck with ur rebuild.
