Dory Building Classes - 2019

Have you ever wanted to build a dory? Plenty of us have, and all of us are at different stages of that dream: maybe you just learned about dories and it’s an entirely new addition to your bucket list; more likely it’s something that’s been dancing around in the back of your mind for quite some time now. Years & years. Some of you have the plans, the wood and the desire all ready to go .. just feeling a bit light on the knowledge side; nervous about taking that first step. Measure twice, cut once .. but what if you still cut wrong?

The Dory Shop is here to help! We are once again hosting a dory building class here in our historic boat yard on Lunenburg’s waterfront. Over two weeks, you and up to 7 other people will work together to build a beautiful Banks Dory. The last day of classes we’ll have an official launch and you can take her for a row.

Mike Gray has been building boats since he was knee-high to a grasshopper, and he’s as entertaining as he is knowledgeable. It will be a fun couple of weeks, and we’re hoping to see you there.

When? I guess that’s the most important part, right? Starting Monday, October 21 and running until Friday, November 1st.

Cheers! See you in Lunenburg 😊
