Transom Dory Coming Along

We are having some kind of gorgeous finest kind day here in Lunenburg. Sharp warm sun, crystal blue sky, light north-westerly, sunshine sparkling sunshine out on the Harbour. The Picton Castle, our neighboring world-voyaging barque-rigged sailing ship cuts a fine figure against the sky and sea at a nearby wharf. And our Transom-Dory is almost finished. Jay is planking up a small fore-deck and the transom is cut out to take a long shaft outboard motor. This boat has been framed with double the number full-grown knee frames. She should be ready for paint in a couple of days. She is going to be one fine work boat or beachable runabout. Maybe we will just keep her.
