    Re: James Wharram World Voyager and Catamaran designer and builder has died.

    Thanks for reminding everyone about James's death David. He was an incredible human, at all levels.

    Back in the 80's I spent 3 years cruising  on a self built "Narai Mk IV", one of James's older design. I can witness how good those catamarans were, even in bad weather.

    More interesting than my good and nostalgic memories of a beautiful adventure is the way Polynesians did offshore navigation. Using birds flight, stars position, ocean color or temperature, and swell / waves directions... This was surprisingly accurate and enabled them to populate the Pacific Ocean. Food for thoughts...
