I know from your message that you are interested in building not buying. However, you might enjoy checking out the web site below that is all about my Swampscott Dory. It was built at The Landing Wooden Boat School.
You can't even begin to imagine how many hours I have spent drooling over your stunning dory. I can say with the utmost confidence that it is absolutly the most beautiful dory my blues have ever settled upon. In fact it has made me reconsider building one out of fear that mine would not look half as good as yours. It is truly stunning. The photography is beautiful. I actually found your dory some time back and I think I have had most of the pics of it as my desktop at one time or another.Congratulations! You have to be very proud of her.Envy is a terrible, terrible thing. The pic captioned "work boat or work of art" sums it all up nicely and is my current desktop.
Was she built from a specific design? Any further impressions of her under oar?
One really odd note. The name, "Talisman" , is the name I had picked out for my first real boat. I got it from an old Stephen King book by that name. Something to transport me between two worlds, one of hectic,chaotic disorder and another of peace and tranquility. Serenity and solitude.
MIGHT enjoy checking out your Swampscott dory, are you kidding? Who wouldn't?
Do you have any more pics of her? I could never tire of looking at this work of art,er, work boat, no, it is a work of art.
If you ever need an ego boost just write and get me talking about your dory.
All The Best,
Mr.Bill, who is still
