I've received a request from a reader to help identify the junk-rigged dory pictured below. I find this interesting cruiser familiar, but can't quite place her. The beach, composed of small rock and sand, lined with Douglas fir and soft maple trees is very characteristic of the Salish Sea (Puget Sound) in Washington state, US, but this is only conjecture.
If you have any information about this vessel, please leave a comment below, or send me a note at:
Today (2/19) a reader named Dan writes in to tell us:
"This dory on the beach is a creation by Victoria [British Columbia, Canada] artist Godfrey Steven. It's a St Pierre dory with bilge keels. The boat is now in the
hands of Godfrey's daughter Aija on Salt Spring Island BC, Canada. The dory's name is Chu Wey."
Thank you, Dan!
