THE AWESOME



Gus Hedden took twice as much time as he expected to build this 15′8″ x 4′5″ Stickleback Dory designed by Iain Oughtred.

He salvaged the sail from a 25-year-old Bolger Gypsy design and the spars from small Sunfish style boat. Taking inspiration from John Gardner’s Chamberlain Gunning Dory, he built a drop-rudder.

Gus launched THE AWESOME on Mother’s Day, 2011, in Lebanon, Maine. He plans to use for “fishing and messing about in local ponds, lakes, rivers and coastal waters.”
