Lucky Pierre Design

Lucky Pierre by Peter Mahon, Malahide County, Dublin, Ireland June 15, 2009 Here are a few photos of my Lucky Pierre dory which I have just completed, I have just returned from its maiden voyage and so far I am very pleased with its performance. I have built the outboard well version and have a 25hp mercury engine which will be more than adequate to drive it. I found your plans very easy to follow and very accurate and am very pleased with the lines of the boat for such a simple construction.

Lucky Pierre by Tom Hruby, Lacey, Washington November 21, 2008 Photos are of the second Lucky Pierre (Daddy’s Too) I built. This version is powered by 2 electric trolling motors (109 lbs. thrust each, 36 volts) in an outboard well. I get 5 hrs of cruising time on a charge (about 30 miles). Construction is ½ plywood with 10oz glass cloth and polyester resin.

<p>Subject: Completed St. Pierre Dory photos Date: Sat, 28 Oct 2000 16:35:11 -0700 </p><p> Hi all, Attached photos of dory I completed and launched on July 1st. Sold charter boats for health reasons and wanted something very economical but fun to knock about in by myself rather than going nuts ashore. </p><p> Took me 15 months time working 3 to 4 hours a day. Used southern yellow pine for frames and mahogany for longitudinal stringers. MDO signboard plywood for planking. Covered with epoxy via West system and interior saturated with penetrating epoxy. Powered with 1 cyl. Bukh diesel of 10 hp turning 3000 max through 2/1 reduction. Speed at 2300 cruise 6 mph. Have chart gps, bottom machine and autopilot and using to fish the Gulf of Mexico at a leisurely pace. Will cruise some next summer. No major problems building. Fun boat that really gets a lot of comments and turns heads. </p><p> Complete pics of construction progress can be seen at my website: http://www.onthegulf.com </p><p> Thanks for the good plans and source of supplies and hardware. </p><p> Capt. Chuck Stinchfield</p>
