LAZY BIRD

Starting with the plan for the Chaisson Dory in John Gardner's "The Dory Book," Dennis Rogers rounded her hull and used double-diagonal planking based on the Ashcroft system to make this lovely tender, LAZY BIRD. Noting that she is a joy to row, he plans to build a nice pair of oars more suitable for the boat. When he is not rowing, Dennis powers her with an electric outboard.
