Dyer 1

< Back to Dyer


A past customer brought me this 8′ Dyer Dhow sailing dinghy, perhaps the most ubiquitous, “dinghy-est” dinghy ever built.  The small boat was in good condition, but showing her age, and he requested that I refinish the interior woodwork and spars, as well as install a soft traditional rubrail along the gunwale.  Over the coming weeks, I planned to pick away at thee small job between other things, and immediately ordered the new rubrail and other materials I’d need for the job so I could get started.

Total time billed on this job today:  .5 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  32°, clear.  Forecast for the day:  sunny, around 70
