Swampscott Dory by westphalia - Bluejacket

Recommended Posts

My first ever model boat build and first MSW post. I was in Bluejacket's shop two weeks ago in Searsport, ME and marveled over all their kits and thought I would jump in feet first and give this one a try. Maybe this is the standard and it gets easier with experience but the directions are really more highlights of the build rather than step by step. Regardless, I'm looking forward to each stage and now get to tackle hull planking, woohoo! I'm using a walnut stain instead of the maple color for the inside of the hull, it will nearly match the mahogany seats, hope that will look ok (mostly because I had this handy and didn't want to drive into town). Thinking of adding spar urethane also to give it the shiny poly look, maybe that will lighten the inside also.
