  1. Re: Looking for info on the 26' Lunenburg Dory, Wild Rose Chance.

    Here's a pic of the rudder. I don't have the boat yet. I will in a few weeks. And I hope to talk to Harry Bryan who installed the rig.

    Found out it's the largest dory they make at the Dory Shop in Lunenburg. Next mystery, how does the tiller work?

  5. Looking for info on the 26' Lunenburg Dory, Wild Rose Chance.

    Hello All!

    I'm merrily making arrangements to take over the stewardship of Wild Rose Chance, a 26' Dory built in the late 70's. In the early 80's 'Rosie' was converted into a cruiser. Harry...

    Glue it and screw it? Maybe a lashing as reinforcement. Cut the cracked part away and glue a new bit in? Maybe consider a new trailering setup.

    Re: 10' Ash oars

    Re: British Seagull Outboard

    Are two strokes still being sold new? Here in Canada I do believe they have been outlawed. I've been considering a 3.5 or 4 horse, but they're kind of large in size. I want one of those.
  27. Re: Hot Knife for cutting Dacron. Necessary? Recommendations?

    Thanks for the advice regarding the head round. I certainly welcome any sage advice. I've got 1.5" of luff round on the mainsail, I should have two or three at the head?

  38. Re: Finding the CLR on a Straight Keel Noman's Land Boat.
