One of the best, and at the same time eccentric, boat designers is a New Englander named Phil Bolger. He often says that when his time comes St.Peter will let him in on the merits of this dory design - I think he's right. They are easy to build and a joy to row. Pretty much impossible to capsize they are a wonderful platform for those taking up rowing.
A sensitive eye will notice that I didn't get the line of the sheer quite right - or sweet as they say. To make amends I later built a second one to a slightly modified Bolger design. I have not as yet turned up a picture record of this second one but I'm still looking.
