Upright Channel Custom Boat Works Dory

This lapstrake traditional style boat was built by Jeremy Snapp of Upright Channel Boat Works on Lopez Island in the early 1980’s. The boat has a wood hull with two rowing stations and a mast for day sailing. The boat had sat outside, unprotected for many years and was deteriorating. I completely restored the boat in the spring of 2008. Jeremy Snapp currently owns and operates Pacific Heritage Press.
