New Seneca Pacific Dory Launched in Australia

I just received this email and photos of a Seneca in Coorong National Park, South Australia.

Hey Jeff,

This is a great design. Only took 3 months to build for an hour or so a night. It's light and manoeuvrable, and with an 18hp and a family on board, it cruises at 20mph. Where we live the water is very shallow (often only a couple of feet) so the flat bottom works perfectly. Thanks again for a great design!!!

Boat Building Photos

Please don't be embarrassed to send in photos of your projects. I get a lot of emails from people who tell me about their build but never send any pictures. I'd love to see them, as would all of the other people who are either building a boat or thinking about it. They need all the encouragement they can get.
