Boothbay Mini-Dory Just Completed from Free Boat Plans

Just received this email all the way from Crow's Nest Australia:

Hey Jeff,
As requested on the web site, please find attached some photos of my attempt at a Booth bay. It was a practice project before building the Mission Bay as a car topper. It was worthwhile too, because I learned a heap about using resin and epoxy putty. She is made of 4mm (3/16) epoxy soaked ply and weighs 21Kg (46lb). Mostly it will be used on a farm dam.
Thank you very much for putting those plans up for free, it really is worthwhile.
Regards
Ross Plant

Very nice job, there Ross! You should say "success" not just "attempt." I like the name of your town too!
