Phil Bolger Dory

Yesterday I started on a friends little 16’ Dory. It had only gunwale guards, and both were scarfed and both scarfs had popped. So I removed them, cut 4) 18’ full 1”x1-1/2” fir boards to not only replace the gunwales but also to add inwales for added sheer strength. Today I fit the full length gunwale guards and inwales. Tomorrow I’ll clean up the glue, fill the counter sinks with epoxy bungs then send her on her way! The owner plans on finishing her with fresh brightwork and a fresh coat of paint in and out.

This little Phil Bolger design Dory has sweet lines.
