Greetings from the Chesapeake Bay

I am currently entering the fourth year restoring the JOLLY DOLPHIN, a Three-Sail bateau built by Mr. Jim Richardson in 1958. From August 2008 to June 2010 she was upside-down (as she was originally built) at the James B. Richardson Museum Boatworks getting a new cross planked bottom, new inner and outer stems, a new transom, and a rebuilt Cummins 4B-76hp among other items. Through 2011 and this spring I have completed a new deck and cabin sides. I will re-rig the masts in mid April with the intention of getting her sailing by July fifth, the 5th anniversary of my stewardship.

Re: Greetings from the Chesapeake Bay

Hope you can share some photos and stories with us, Three-Sail. Those Bay-built boats are beauties. I've got a model of the skipjack, Rosie Parks, built by a resident of Cambridge, which I treasure greatly.

Welcome to the forum!

Welcome to the forum. She is a beauty and I echo Hud's request to share more photos. Where is she located, I also would like to take a peak.

Despite pressure from my family, JOLLY DOLPHIN does not have a dedicated web presence. Although I have more that 5,500 photographs I honestly have not been able to make time to sit in front of the screen long enough to spread the word.

Yet.

Re: Greetings from the Chesapeake Bay

Welcome Three-Sail,
I post on sailblogs.com, very easy to do. I'm on Bodkin Inlet between Baltimore and Annapolis. You've got many prospective fans here, to see what you are up to, and also to give you support. It's easy to post text and pictures. It seems that most like a lot of pictures with little text. You can clip and paste test from a simple wordpad file, and pictures need to be resized, like using paint, and I use 800X600 pixels, seems to come out OK,

The way I feel about it, I don't care if anyone bothers to read my blog, it's there for the hard core builder who is willing to grind through the awful details of sanding paper, paint mixes, etc. I love reading all the stuff I can find about traditional boatbuilding. Don't think that there is no interest in working a plane or marking up some complicated joints, there are others out there who have to do the same thing and like to see the correct or incorrect way to do it.
I am retired, yet work on the boat almost every day. I've started sailing it again, and soon, this year, it will be more sailing that building.
Perhaps you will need some help, and better yet, help with sailing. Just send a message to kaimusailingAThotmailDOTcalm.
Cheers.

Re: Greetings from the Chesapeake Bay

Welcome aboard the Cruiser Forum, I hope to be sailing your back yard soon. I hav'nt been to the Chessie since 1965. Love it there, building a shallow draft folding tri to sail the bay. Was out of the Solomans then..
