Hello Dory Lovers

 Welcome to Dory Land – a note from Andy

I’ve been building, rowing and following this passion since I first laid eyes on whitewater dories in a book entitled Hidden Canyon, by John Blaustein.  I then saw these boats on the water, back in 1982, and fell immediately in love from my simple kayak.

Since finishing my first dory in 1990, I’ve shaped 20+ of these boats, one hull at a time for folks who wish to realize that same dream. From patterned kits to shaped hulls and highly customized fishing or whitewater dories, I am at your service.  I also specialize in boat repairs and renovation of historic dories and driftboats. Also, I’m your source for oars, trailers and other hard-to-find accessories, such as oarlock stands, custom oar wraps, lettering and artwork. Get in touch and I’ll assist you with your dream boat.
