Social Distancing with my boat

Once dory is flipped over the real work begins. While it seems that we’re halfway done it’s more like when a house is framed and dried in.  The finish work takes well more than 50% of the time.

First cross bulkhead support pieces were added:



Followed by bow and sidewall cleats:








Sidewall cleats always look wavy and out of alignment, but are correct. 

And bulkhead plywood is trimmed to match cross pieces top bevels:


Seat braces and spare oar slot took a big chunk of an entire day!  Lots of crazy angles and cuts:



Then spent a few days planning water drainage, gutters and frames and hatch lid sizes and locations, esp various cooler locations (if used ):

Dory Progress

Been a while since I’ve posted here. Been busy quarantining and building.

Some pics below of adding panels, hull, and turning boat over with chain hoist.
