9' Dyer Dhow dinghy restoration begins
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...
