Mustafa Avci's Tillamook Launched in Canakkale (Turkey)

I just got this email and pictures:

Hello Jeff,
I had bought the "Pacific Power Dory Tillamook" boat plan from you around one year ago. With that plan I built the boat in 8 months by only spending my weekends. Last week I launched the boat, in Canakkale. Even though my friends were making some jokes about the boat by saying that it would sink, I went on building it. Eventually my friends even loved how the boat goes, and I feel the honour of it. I obeyed the plan during the building period. But for the inside design, and the outside painting I used some Turkish styles decoration. I hope you like it.
Thank you so much. Best regards,
Mustafa Avci
Tavakli / Canakkale / Turkey

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.
