March 2013: Maine Boatbuilders' Show, Portland, ME
Dan showed off a new Banks Dory he made for Chris. Chris rows about 150 days of the year, and wanted a sturdy boat to take on his adventures. Dan and Chris settled on a slightly modified version of the famous banks dory "Centennial." They shortened the overall length by about 2 feet and the overall width by a few inches.
This dory costs 6800$ as-is (ready to row). Possible modifications include adding sailing capability, adding a motor, or changing the dimensions to accommodate user needs. Please contact Dan for more information.
Chris's dory is made of pine (planks and bottom), plywood (garboard plank only), and white oak (frames/rails only). There is a layer of fiberglass (cloth, system 3) over the bottom and garboard to prevent unnecessary damage. For only a few hundred dollars more, pine could be replaced with cedar.
