In 2009 I decided to learn how to build a boat,
trailer & beac h launch, row,  sew a sail , rig the  
sail, go sailing, repair broken parts.

It's been great and I plan on enjoying my boat for
many years, let's go sailing!!
Based on patterns for a CLC Northeaster Dory.  I built it bigger
and heaver to handle 3' chop and 15 mph winds. I'm still learn
ing it's characteristics. We will be come one !
In 2010 started rowing,  rigged for sailing in 2011.
It's a stitch and glue system made of marine plywood,
fiberglass, epoxy. Seats are cedar decking.
16'-7" loa x 5'-5" beam.+/- 400lb.
Plywood dagger board and kick up rudder.
No motor. One person power via 8'-6" sitka spruce spoon oars.
Sealed chambers w/ foam +/- 400lb floatation.
Sailrite sail kit,  94 sqft +/-  balance lug.
Heavy boat to row in 15 mph winds.
