Abie Porpoise

I love this site!

Thank you for your hard work. Great resource!

I think I would like a balanced lug on this J. Atkins dory that I intend to build.

Her lines are similar to the wonderful Caledonia that you featured.

I am going to have a small diesel amidships and will use this boat for coastal & bay fishing in N.C. as well as sailing.

I don't want a high-performance rig, but rather a safe and sturdy rig that will be fun and inexpensive.

I need to do some head-scratching on where to step the mast, what size sail, etc.

Probably will leave the foredeck open to allow for experimentation and better fishing mobility.
