Maine boat builder Dale Cottrell has been designing, building and restoring boats for over 40 years. His most enduring design is the classic Puffin Dinghy, of which thousands dot the harbors of the world. He loves small boats - loves building them and loves to use them. Small boats like the Fiddlehead tenter, Maine Whitehall, Penobscot Wherry, and the Catspaw Dinghy (Joel White’s interpretation of Nat Herreshoff’s classic Columbia Dinghy).
