"If you really want a rigid home built catamaran with a bridge deck, I suggest looking at Hughes and Woods designs. These do not cost any more or less to build than a comparable sized Wharram, do not require heavy modifications (to get what you are…"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakhalil5888@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless

Stella.

G'day Dean, unfortunatley this did not happen with the Teheni hulls. The project stood to long and got wet rot in the hulls. I am in the process of buying a new boat also in my picture albums ORO with a center cockpit, this has no mast so the intention is to Junk Rig her. As original plan. I will keep an eye out for your Build as well. Fair winds.
