Dottie D was built by the current owner's father in 1952. Tragically, the father passed away in a car accident in 1954, but Dottie D was used until 1958 by the son. Eventually, she was placed in storage for over fifty years. Due to the time in storage, her plywood bottom was badly cracked from the lack of support on the original trailer and the boat's own weight.
Currently, we are replacing the bottom with new Okume plywood. Additionally, she'll be fully restored to her full glory so that her owner can continue enjoying her as he did back in the 1950s.
