|From Tuning the Gunning Dory|
VCB volunteers, including students from the New School Mariners Class, high school and college community rowers joined forces with community boatbuilders to roll over VCB newest boat in the making. The boat is a Chamberlain Gunning Dory based on a drawing of a 19′ dory by John Gardner, a famed Mystic Seaport boatbuilder. The hull is finished but there is still lots of work to do on the inside- inwales, risers, seats, foot stretchers. Then we have to sand it, paint it and name it. The New School contingent who worked on the dory as part of their Mariners Class have proposed that she be named “Gold Rush.”
Community Boatbuilding & Repair sessions will continue through the winter on Wednesdays at 3:00 pm and Sundays at noon. All are welcome. Contact Rob Buchanan or Sally Curtis at [email protected].
