Redd's Pond Boatworks
Watch for updates through photos and carrier pigeons!
From John Gardner's Dory book we built this 16' dory. The hull is built to the Gerald Smith dory Republican originally built behind his house across the street. We added the beachcomber rig and centerboard as he describes on the larger dory built for Rockefeller in his other book "boats you can build". Cedar planks and sole on Oak frames. Solid Sitka spruce spars.
A scaled down version of design #94
A collection of projects we work on after hours and inbetween projects.
Redd's Pond Boatworks replaced Say When II's keel, lower frames, planking and updated the electrical systems in 2012. Now in 2015 she has returned to have the topsides refinished and have the hardware restored.
Our first new build project is a mixture of two Grant guideboats designs. A labor of love, she is being built with laminated frames, spruce crook stems, and Grant lapped planks.
