Grand Banks Dory

Grand Banks Dory

The Grand Baks dory is a storied rowing craft renown for its seaworthiness, load-carrying ability and shallow draft. They were particularly useful in the fishing trade because of their stacking ability when stowed on deck. Yet they could haul hundreds of pounds of fish. Their relatively narrow shape and sleek lines make them able rowboats. Tippy at first, their secondary stability will get you home in a rough sea.
