Nova Scotian Grand Banks Dory Completed

Just got this note and photo by email.

Hello Jeff,

I've had a blast building my nova scotian dory and it's getting close to putting on the water. I'd like to add the sail rig on it and I'm wondering if you have any pictures of the boat with the sail rig?

No, sorry Alex. I don't have any yet, but be sure to send me pictures of yours when the sails are up. Gere's a picture of an Inagua sailing sharpie with a very similar rig.

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.
