I built the boat for a beach club in Rhode Island. They wanted it to race in a dory racing series they have in RI. Their requirements were : light weight, no foot braces, and thole pins (!). The boat weighed 90 lbs finished, and won the series the next year. You can see photos at http://www.oldwharf.com/recentprojects.html
