Picked up a dinghy from Marblehead to be able to get out to Seamunkey's new mooring in Gloucesters Southeast harbor. From the looks of it, I believe its a 9' Dyer Dhow. I'm not seeing any kind of serial on the transom, so perhaps the transom was replaced, its older than '72 or its serial was painted over. She is probably in good enough shape to get out to the mooring, but I'd like to gain some experience in repair/restoration and this dinghy is going to be my first project.
Step 1 - cleaning, seat replacement, paint removal and sanding...

Seamunkey will soon be floating outside of Niles beach here in Gloucester Harbor. Its somewhat protected by the dogbar breakwater, but still exposed from the southwest, and access through Niles beach by dinghy will work during non-peak season. During the summer peak season, I'll probably launch from flat cove or pavillion beach unless I can find a nice spot to tie-up.
