    Hi Neil

    It is interesting that Wharram and his catamarans seem to have the ability to inspire and make others philosophise, yourself included. It also seems that James sought inspiration for his designs and own philosophy from such greats as Bernard Moitessier and unanswered questions about the origins of the Polynesians and their mode of migration.

    James’ own voyages and the development of his designs show that we can use these inspirations to go on to great things. Your plans and those of many others reflect this. Mine too I hope.

    One of my particular points to take away from Bernard Moitessier was the back to basics approach. Sails, wind, sea and a sound craft are the raw elements giving the ability to travel. I am a gadget man, but I am always happiest on a yacht when the engine is off and it it just me with the tiller (or wheel), sheets and a course to set. I am all for technology that keeps us safe, and is there for an emergency. For the rest though, I will be looking to see what I can do without on my Tiki(s?).

    Hi Neil,

    Luck shines on you. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled when I visit the local recycling centre. It’s a book I’d like to own.

    Gleda is looking the biz!

    All the best mate,
    PaulE
