Transom construction

Constructing the Transom


Finally fixed the transom!

The Voyage Begins

In December 08 construction began of my 14-foot Semi-Dory. I am building this boat from the book Building Classic Small Craft by John Gardner. Watch my blog for updates as I build from scratch, paint and sail this boat all from project headquarters, my garage in beautiful South West Michigan!
