Adventures In Boat Building Your Own Grand Banks Dory


Expert Article By: Sanjib Ahmad

Imagine having your boat, and not just an ordinary boat. Imagine building with your own hand and being the proud owner of a Grand Bankers Dory.

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines dory as:

Dory n. pl. Dories

A small, narrow, flatbottom fishing boat with high sides and a sharp prow.

The common Dory size ranges from 10 feet to 14 feet in length and can hold from 3 to 5 persons. A Grand Banks Dory is usually 16 feet in length. The traditional Grand Banks Dory is also notable as a seaworthy vessel. The fishermen have successfully sailed with the Dory many miles of the North Atlantic Ocean under varied weather conditions.

The Grand Banks Dory has a strong shear line. The outward curve of sides near the bow is well defined. The Dory also has a sharp entry point so that it cuts through the water easily and with speed. The bottom of the boat is flat and doesn't have keels or skegs. This makes the boat slide along waves with little resistance. The Dory rows well and can be fitted with a sail rig.

The Grand Banks Dory could be built from your home and in your pastime. It could be a relaxing hobby while providing the opportunity to showoff your friends and family that you are building a boat. You don?t need carpentry skills to build your Grand Banks Dory but it can help if you do.

You can build your own 16 Foot long Grand Banks Dory in as little as 2 - 3 weeks. All of the materials needed for this project can be picked up at any local hardware store and lumberyard. The recommended method to plank your boat is with White Pine.

The Grand Banks Dory is a great investment. If properly cared for, it can easily last 30 years.
