Alpha Dory

A traditional dory design from the North Shore of Massachusetts, the Alpha Dory is great for day sailing, fishing and short overnights.

Ipswich Bay 18

A sailing dory, of my own design, with a 12.5 foot waterline and fast cut.  I built this boat between Summer 2006 and January 2007.  This is a new class of sailing dory, inspired by historical decked sailing dories of the Massachusetts North Shore.  Its long, sleek design is reminiscent of the popular Laser.  This is a custom boat, one I would want for myself, ideal for day-sailing with two or three passengers.

Steam-Powered Model Boats

Between jobs, I've been working on some large-scale Pop-Pop steamboat designs.   Recently featured at a NEMES conference in Waltham, MA (New England Model Engineering Society), word is spreading fast about the unusually large 5-foot pop-pop dory I've built.
