Sweet Caroline by Porter Harvey

June 11, 2008

I have been building your “Sweet Caroline” for a few years. I made some big additions to your great hull (hope you don’t mind). I have a lot of build shots, and boat floating. It has a 20 hp air-cooled Wisconsin turning a 12” 3 blade prop. I also made my own stern tube, steam bent the cockpit oak pices, and its got 16 coats of clear on the cypress decking. All work was done buy me in my shop but my wife made the cushions. I also built the trailer, and transmission. :)

Thanks for the great shape of the hull. Can it be called an “East Coast Dory”?
