I have finally reached the paint stage on the Dory 12! I have the hull done, the boat is upright, and I am priming and sanding for final paint. The picture below shows the green hull and some white primer topside. It is only primer, so doesn’t shine – but it will!
This photo shows how I made an airbox for floatation under the midseat. This should add much-needed buoyancy to the boat. It is an open design otherwise. When the epoxy cures, it will all be primed and painted.The airbox is behind the centerboard trunk.
This could be the week the boat gets finished!
