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.

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
