Dory Progress

Lately, a lot of you Peeps have been asking me how the Dory is coming along. Do you think that I don't sense the sarcasm and ridicule in this annoying question?
You obviously know that I have neglected the Dory project, yet you persist in asking me about it's progress!
A lesser man would undoubtably burst a gasket and shower you with obscenities, but you have pitted yourself against my superior discipline and self control.
The fact is that all of my projects are ultimately geared to construction of the Marblehead Gunning Dory. First I have to fit out the basement so Mike will have a place to entertain when he ventures to Marblehead from South Boston. Then I have to make a series of tool boxes to organize my growing tool collection. And I'm thinking or seriously milling some birch logs into bench posts for a workbench that I have been contemplating for some time now.
Also, this period of inactivity has given me the perspective to make the dory into a dedicated inshore lobster boat with a primary outboard power option and space to transport traps and bait. The Red Riser Davit Pulley System will be incorporated into this design as well as the Honda 9 HP Four Stroke.
Plus, I've been grabbing ideas from my Brother Boatbuilders on the Web.
So I really haven't been neglecting the Dory. It's just been mental progress rather than physical.
