After years of looking and watching, along comes a complete, running example. Largely a cosmetic restoration, it will be stripped of its house paint, all bearings changed, and a new table welded up. The induction/repulsion motor will be serviced and continue to run at 220v.
To be set up to resaw for ribs and planking, it has over 10" capacity

Dory is almost done. Seats are done, centerboard trunk needs to be trimmed and rudder and mast step to go in. Time to order a sail or its power only this summer. Never tire of looking at its lines.
Vintage engine in place, new cleaner 4stroke coming.
