Re: Wharram Narai MK lV .

That looks like a labour of love
We had a Narai and lived on her for a year - great boats!

Re: Wharram Narai MK lV .

Looks like a good deal to me. I restored a Pahi 42 for a customer years ago and found the Wharram designs very quick and easy to repair. Do you plan to be in the water this year?
Good luck

Re: Wharram Narai MK lV .

I just bought a 1974 Narai. Getting ready for my first trip of sailing it home in October, So excited to see how it goes. Thankfully for me it doesn't need as much work as you.

Keep us updated on how the project is going.
