New Carolinian Carolina Dory Launched

Robbie Chason just completed his new Carolinian. He wrote to me:

Hi Jeff,

This was my first attempt to build a boat. I used 1/2" marine plywood. The frame is oak, and the rest the rest is clear fir. There's not a knot in the entire boat. I fiberglassed just the bottom.

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.
