Isn't that amazing - after well over a year you picked up the thread relating to my original message looking for a plan for the Auray dinghy!
As it turned out, when my friend did a big cleanup prior to shifting he actually found the drawing so I'm happy to say it's now back in my possession. It's also interesting that in the last couple of days I've been thinking about getting it built in aluminium and trying to work
out a means of altering the roof rack on my vehicle to accommodate it - a rather amazing, albeit slightly spooky coincidence don't you think?!
Nevertheless, thanks for getting back to me, and I'd very much appreciate some photos of the dinghy. Perhaps it was the Colvin connection that was the reason for my thread coming to light, as presumably you might have been trawling the forum for other Colvin hits at the time. As i indicated in my post I built Colvin's Gazelle and if you're interested I'll also see if I can dig up some photos of her. As you may know, Tom recently passed away and will be a great loss to the cruising fraternity
Tom's book of designs is packed away in a container in Townsville, Queensland
while we are travelling long-term around Australia
and are currently in Perth, Western Australia, but from memory Doxy was a double-ended pinky design of about 38'or 42' length and of quite heavy displacement
? Is she lug or gaff rigged? Just as keen to see some pictures of her as well as the dinghy if that's OK.
Again Kristjan, thanks for kind offer and good luck with your Doxy.
Look forward to hearing from you again when convenient. My email
