New Boothbay Mini-Dory Completed from Free Boat Plans

Just got this email and these pictures and thought I'd share it with all:

Jeff,
Thank you for making available free plans to anyone wanting to take on the challenge of building a boat. As you requested, I have attached pictures of my finished hull. I have always wanted to build a boat and this was a good test of my skills. I made several mistakes of course, but I have learned a lot from the experience. I also now have a nice set of tools with which I intend to continue this new found hobby. I have received many compliments since the first day I put her in the water and each one gives me pride and the confidence to build another hull.
