Building the Alison: A South Haven Dory

3,033

Published on

A few years ago I built this boat. A rowboat named 'Alison'. Its design was the South Haven Dory. Its construction method was stitch-and-glue, a composite construction method of plywood, epoxy, and fiberglass cloth--no screws, no nails. The boat was build for just a few hundred dollars total, the biggest expense was quality marine epoxy.
