One 15' Alamitos V-Bottom Dory Builder's Experience

I just received this email from a 15' Alamitos V-Bottom Dory builder:

Jeff,

We love the boat we built from your plans. It's been a year now and it's holding up very well. We're been going out of Oceanside almost ever Saturday fishing the kelp. Never once had an issue with the boat itself or felt unsafe in it.

Here's a picture of my wife Tami and an 8.4# Calico she caught off the boat to take 3rd place in the Oceanside Anglers Club 10# test line tournament.
