Here the magical dory is tied to Philip T. Feeney, which now languishes in a tug purgatory.   The shore of lower Manhattan also looked quite different then.  That low-slung but stately building on the other side of the river is the Custom House aka Museum of the American Indian.

Reef points and baggy wrinkle . . . this is a classy sailing dory not timid

and in.  All new builds follow the same arc, even though the details differ.  Check out the splash of Onrust here over a half decade back.  Here’s how the water came up to meet Pegasus back five years ago.

To finish the dory, there’s a trip

through the Kills and

across Raritan Bay to get to Cheesequake Creek.  Pam writes, “Carl Baronowshi, owner of the yard was helpful in determining the rig. Traditionally it would have been a push the boom up alongside the mast and unstep the whole business and lay it in the boat. I wasn’t strong enough to list the mast out of the step without raising havoc if it got out of the step, John help me figure out a gooseneck and track arrangement so we could lower the sail in a less cumbersome manner.”
