Lucky Pierre by Peter Mahon, Malahide County, Dublin, Ireland

June 15, 2009

Here are a few photos of my Lucky Pierre dory which I have just completed, I have just returned from its maiden voyage and so far I am very pleased with its performance.

I have built the outboard well version and have a 25hp mercury engine which will be more than adequate to drive it. I found your plans very easy to follow and very accurate and am very pleased with the lines of the boat for such a simple construction.

Thank you very much for your excellent service and I found your web site to be a great help. I don't know what I will do with all my spare time now that the boat is completed. I have enjoyed the experience.

I am very pleased with the result and my wife will be glad to get the garage back. I have named it Jabiru after an Australian stork.

Once again thank you very much for your assistance.

Jabiru heading out of Malahide in late 2010.

Looking forward to 2011 in her.
