View Full Version : Swampscott Dory - progress pics!

07-10-2003, 10:43 PM
The last photos I posted were from January, I believe. Much progress since then. When I uploaded the photos to imagestation they got all jumbled out of order, though. This picture is from a couple weeks ago. The sheer edge has been cleaned up since then, and I got the first inwale in today. My sails came from Nat Wilson last week, and they look fabulous !!

Recent pictures docmenting the process up to this point at Swampscott Dory 2 (imagestation album) (http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4289707599).

Basically, it goes:
1. planking
2. moving out of the basement workspace (yes, it fit out the door!)
3. Cutting down a white oak and milling the wood to make frames.
4. Steaming, rivetting, etc....

Old photos from earlier in the progect are at Swampscott Dory (imagestation album) (http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4291819155).

The plan is to stick her on a trailer and move to Michigan in a month when I head off to school. Meanwhile, I'll do what I can to ensure that she's solid enough to handle the trip. I'll post more as I get photos developed and scanned.

Good job! You'll have a fine boat soon!

Very nice indeed.

Where are you going to school? Where do you work on the boat while going to school?

I'd like to stop by if you're in the metro Detroit area for a gander/kibbitz.

Thanks you all.

MJC - I'm going to be in a graduate program at Michigan State. How far will I be from Detroit?

BTW, if you're there in August, check out the Howell Melon Festival (http://www.howellmelonfestival.com/) in (obviously) Howell, Michigan (between East Lansing and Ann Arbor).

Howell is famous for the Howell Melon, a super-sweet variety of cantelope.
