clif - there are a few pics of my boat on this site. i put it up for sale about a week ago. i'm just not sure how to go directly to those pics but i think it is through my blog. when my boat was built the owner wanted more space inside and a slightly different sheer line. he went to jwd to see if the things he was requesting were possible. my boat has a single mast (tiki rig), raised cabin tops, raised gunnels as toe rails and the beam changes. my main front beam ("a"), the one behind it that carries the mast ("b")and the beam behind the cabin ("c")are all lashed on top of the decks just like on a tiki. no indents in the hulls. the "c" beam goes between the hulls and is also lashed on. it does not go through the cabins. This system give a huge amount of easily accessible room in the hulls. a spacious open feel. the design changes were completed by jwd and approved by them. i have all the documentation and communication between the builder and jwd. maybe they just forgot that they made these changes and approved them. they were clear to say that the hulls should not be made taller but only that the beams could be placed on top of the hulls as designed. this is what was done. works great. this is why i call the boat a MKiv+. actually, one might call it a mkv. hope this clarifies things. dan

clif -- opps, i goofed. the beam behind the cabin is "d" not "c". "c" is the beam that is lashed to the insides of the hulls and do not intrude into the hulls. sorry for not proofreading as good as i should have. fair winds, dan

i too have some problem finding pictures. however, likely not an issue as the FL location is the problem for me. I provide care services here and try to make a living so am unable to go truck-about for a wharram. Wishing you a fast and fair sale. clif

ok, saw the photos. Great looking boat. Skookum as we say up here in WA state (PNW). I see the mods. Looks as though real care was put into those and the general building. Would seem to be a fair asking price. What kind of sail do you have? Wingsail? Or?
Thanks for the pointers to the pictures. Sooooo i guess i am still looking for a cat on this side of the continent. Why aren't more of these on the pacific side of things....?
