Wooden Ships Comments
These Dories were originally designed in Swampscott, Massachussets, for commercial fishing in New England and the North Atlantic. They carried tremendous loads of fish in all weather conditions. By the early 1900’s this type of dory became very popular for recreational use, both rowing and sailing. They are noted for their seaworthiness and speed, accomplishing some remarkable open water voyages. This marine ply version was designed by Ian Oughtred and built by Francis Browne and Jasper Bagshaw of the Wooden Boat Co, Landrake, for the present owner.
