Subject: Completed St. Pierre Dory photos
Took me 15 months time working 3 to 4 hours a day. Used southern yellow pine for frames and mahogany for longitudinal stringers. MDO signboard plywood for planking. Covered with epoxy via West system and interior saturated with penetrating epoxy. Powered with 1 cyl. Bukh diesel of 10 hp turning 3000 max through 2/1 reduction. Speed at 2300 cruise 6 mph. Have chart gps, bottom machine and autopilot and using to fish the Gulf of Mexico at a leisurely pace. Will cruise some next summer. No major problems building. Fun boat that really gets a lot of comments and turns heads.
