Original Gloucester Rocker

It’s hard to imagine you could make a nicer gift for your favorite munchkin. Created by Buckley Smith (author of Moonsailors) this animated rocking dory is oozing with personality. The big sweeping sheer, traditional transom with a sculling notch, cleat handle, and wave-like rockers all combine to give you as much fun building as the kids will have playing.

Three sheets of plans with full-sized patterns for all parts plus the building jig are included, as well as an option to build in lapstrake. Also included is Buck’s hand-drawn instruction booklet. Another nice feature: all materials are available at your local lumberyard.
