The boat is sitting untouched in the garage while our efforts are diverted to building a new kitchen.  It is almost finished and soon boatbuilding will resume.



  1. You are making a very good job of your boat. I built Ian O’s Blackfish Dory 22 years ago, and I’m still sailing her around the Isles of Scilly, so its worth taking a bit of trouble, otherwise you can regret it for a long time. The notch in the transom is for sculling, ideally it should be a bit deeper, like an upside down omega.

    you better work out what you are going to say to all the strangers who will praise her!
