Things quieted down at the down at the Dory Shop over Christmas. Not surprising. Dories are waiting to be picked up by new owners. The might schooner CALANOVA has been hauled for the winter. Fire wood stacked nearby to get us through the winter. Westergaard Schooner all snug under her roof awaiting her new adventurous owner. The sweet 41’ Concordia Yawl TOSCA awaiting the finishing touches to have her sailing next summer after a nice rebuild from the waterline down. Not bad at all for 60+ year old wooden vessel. 103 Concordia’s were built in the 1950’s and early 60’. 102 of them are still with us. Impressive. She will be stronger than ever once master builder Mike Gray here gets done with her in the spring. TOSCA will sail for decades to come. And we have a fine project in a big Seine Dory finishing up. No ordinary Seine Dory is this. This one has a fine cabin and will cruise the waters of Cape Breton Island. Now that Christmas and New Years are in our wake, the activity picks up again.
So Happy New Year from us at the Dory Shop!
