View from the cabin one night. Pheasants cackling everywhere, Geese honking, Sandhill cranes making their rusty gate sound (not sure how else to describe it).
Several important decisions have been made despite my lack of presence in the garage. The dory design consultants are always at work. Looks like we're going with the Newport (teal) Green/ dark (Dartmouth) green pinstripe combo. And will have a Lone Pine logo (also from Dartmouth) on the transom. Kilroy is out. This has all been influenced by the heavy Dartmouth-weighting of the design members, Cheryl bringing her Southern Belle style as the lone exception.
But the name will be Huerfano, which is solely Western (always capitalized as I tell my kids). As I mentioned earlier, it has special meaning to our family plus I like the concept of "the little orphan" which best represents my boat, built without any close antecedents.
