      Hi Jim,
           It's Andy Smith Boatworks.  Here is a link to their website.
       http://www.andy-smith-boatworks.com/psd/home/index.html  The last two they built were the two ethnic style cats that Wharram and Heneke Boon are sailing around the Pacific as we speak, retracing the ancient Polynesian's routes.

      Kevin,
      Can you provide any more information about the "outfit in the
      Philippines? "
      Thanks
      Jim

      Many don't like Wharram for his supposed hedonistic lifestyle, but if
      you read enough Wharram writings he mentions PCB more than once. Some
      call both simplistic. I prefer to think of it as getting back to
      fundamentals and am a fan of both men. Wharrams are sailing all over
      the world, many have done circumnavigations (the smallest is a Tiki
      21), and he has developed a cult not unlike Bolgeristas. There is
      also an outfit in the Phillipines building his designs and a new one
      in Florida building Wharram Tikis.
