Another Seneca Pacific Dory in British Columbia

Another notification of a new build just arrived:

Hi Jeff,
I finished this Seneca, my first build, last year. My wife affectionately calls it the "Mistress." The boat performed well on the large and gusty lake near our home, The four stroke 15hp pushes the boat up on a plane easily. We enjoy loading up overnight gear as well as our two large dogs and finding our own private lake side camping.

In terms of fit and finish, the boat has a lot of visible lessons learned, but thanks to the quality, detail and clarity of the plans, the boat is solid, fast, and reliable.

Thanks for the inspiration (and the answers to my build questions.)

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.
