Geoff,
I agree. It does have that look, and I freely admit that when it comes to boats or babes, looks count. Shallow perhaps, but that's the tough truth. I stated in an earlier post that most...

The Dory type(s) have long been a favorite of mine, closely shadowed by the Caledonia Yawl, with gunter rig. There is a rare sighting near here of a neglected 16ft Roger Crawford Swampscott just...

Wondering if, perhpas, you know the seller. There is another Geoff on that thread - on the west coast.

Geoff54,
That's the one. The current owner is the poster on that thread. That's his red Forester hooked to the trailer. He refers to his daughter coming home and that she wanted to learn to sail....

Wanderingstar,
Gratifying to hear of another insane canoe sailor. That's doin' it by the seat of your pants, which get wet frequently. What dory do you have? I also sail a 15ft Bolger "Sweet Pea"...

Update;

The owner still has the boat. And, he says he remembers that the previous owner did indeed mention that it was built by Orion. So, that does it. Still, not one single reference on-line...

Thanks, Faster.

I let things slide for awhile, but with this new info, I think I'll shoot the guy a line and see if he still has the boat. I wanted to go down to Oregon and check it out in Sept...
