      1978 james wharram 38'. Original hulls, which have been from florida to hawaii and back. And are still in excellent condition. the hulls were built out of high quality fir plywood and oak then glassed over. the cross member beams have just been replaced with hand picked pressure treated pine, then decked over with high quality 3/4'' fir ply. both sides were treated with food grade linseed oil. 100 + lbs of fasteners predrilled and screwed. Front deck has been built out of composite and is ready for trampoline and last board. the boat has a long shaft high thrust yamaha 8 hp. electric start with power trim. motor pushes the boat just fine 5-7 knts and gets about 10-15 mpg. the motor is a little small, but would be a great tender motor. the boat should have a 25 to 50 hp for any serious traveling.    The boat has a large pine structure built on top out of 2x4 and 1/4'' plywood then a layer of peel and stick tar paper.  The structure measures about 14.4' wide x 19.2' long  and 7.5' tall. feels very large and would make a great open layout, have drawing if wanted. There is a large hatch for each hull in the structure with tons of room for tanks, systems, batteries,storage etc.... the structure has sliding doors front and back that recess into the wall. The large roof has 2 layers of 1/4 ply and well supported for use as large uper deck.The roof is slightly pitched to the stern for rain collection if wanted. eventually the structure should be finished with hatches, tpo roofing and a bamboo reed veneer, or what have you. The boat comes with a 42lb cast aluminum barnacle anchor and a fortress. comes with extras like tools and materials. the boat currently is drawing less than 2.5' the beam is almost 17' with walk around 2''x12'' planking. the rudders do work but are still original and the hardware should be replaced.The boat should be hauled and painted. the back of the boat would be nice with an expanda metal deck that is flush with the rest of the deck and flipping the rudder configuration, which would open up the back deck but would add a couple feet to the boat. The boat could be a motorsailer, power catamaran, very sea-worthy, stable, and shallow draft houseboat or all of the above.
