I have finished your dory! she\'s a little tipsy but a keel will fix that. I changed the plans just a bit for a outboard in the aft. What do you think? Thanks, Aaron P.

Subject: Completed St. Pierre Dory photos Date: Sat, 28 Oct 2000 16:35:11 -0700 Hi all, Attached photos of dory I completed and launched on July 1st. Sold charter boats for health reasons and wanted something very economical but fun to knock about in by myself rather than going nuts ashore. Took me 15 months time working 3 to 4 hours a day. Used southern yellow pine for frames and mahogany for longitudinal stringers. MDO signboard plywood for planking. Covered with epoxy via West system and interior saturated with penetrating epoxy. Powered with 1 cyl. Bukh diesel of 10 hp turning 3000 max through 2/1 reduction. Speed at 2300 cruise 6 mph. Have chart gps, bottom machine and autopilot and using to fish the Gulf of Mexico at a leisurely pace. Will cruise some next summer. No major problems building. Fun boat that really gets a lot of comments and turns heads. Complete pics of construction progress can be seen at my website: Thanks for the good plans and source of supplies and hardware. Capt. Chuck Stinchfield

Subject: Lucky Pierre Date: Sun, 27 Aug 2000 From: JIM CARLISE Hi, as you can see by the pictures I just finished building your St Pierre Dory.During construction I decided not to go with the optional skeg/deadwood, but now I am thinking about adding some ballast to stiffing her up a little.What do you think about a small skeg,about 3 inches wide and 8 to 12 inches deep and about 6 or 7 feet long between frame # 6 and # 3 { not unlike a sail boats centerboard } with some ballast bolted on?

Lucky Pierre by Peter Mahon, Malahide County, Dublin, Ireland June 15, 2009 Here are a few photos of my Lucky Pierre dory which I have just completed, I have just returned from its maiden voyage and so far I am very pleased with its performance. I have built the outboard well version and have a 25hp mercury engine which will be more than adequate to drive it. I found your plans very easy to follow and very accurate and am very pleased with the lines of the boat for such a simple construction.

Lucky Pierre by Tom Hruby, Lacey, Washington November 21, 2008 Photos are of the second Lucky Pierre (Daddy’s Too) I built. This version is powered by 2 electric trolling motors (109 lbs. thrust each, 36 volts) in an outboard well. I get 5 hrs of cruising time on a charge (about 30 miles). Construction is ½ plywood with 10oz glass cloth and polyester resin.
