Strip planked

Having built a strip planked wharram (tama moana) two thoughts.1 its a lot less work to build with plywood, but you are experienced so okay. 2. build a tama moana. sure a lot bigger but accomadation wise, and by weight, its a thirty footer or less but the extra length gives her more sea power. And since you want a thirty footer anyway you might be able to resist completly ruining the most awesome wharram design by adding more accomadation.Glenn Tieman
