Ben Henderson just sent me these photos of his 19' Albion Pacific Power Dory with the framing completed. You can see he built it from off-the-shelf construction grade lumber, even with some tight knots. This material is entirely appropriate for my design techniques, and it means you can buy your lumber anywhere and build a very rigged boat much more cheaply than using some other designer's methods.
The Albion plans and instructions, including free downloadable study prints are here: Albion Pacific Power Dory Boat Plans.

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.
