Update: Been a while since my last post. Not much to report, except that the bottom is almost ready for some paint. First coat of primer.

Re: SD11 - . . . plans and instructions

Hi Ben, just stumbled across your build and glad I did. I too am building an SD11, and just got back at it.

Well, I'm back to boat finally. Shop is done, well almost. Still a little painting to go.

Re: Semi Dory 11 in NW GA

Hey Dale. I just saw this. I also started building the SD11 a few months back. It's been on hold for while due to other projects. Hoping to get back to it soon and I'm glad to see somebody else building the same boat. Looks great BTW. Good luck!
