Inaugural Dory Design

The plans are wrapped up for the inaugural NW River Dory kit from Timber Boatworks. It’s a plan that I’ve built and tweaked previously, and tweaked again. Now it’s time to finish up the machine toolpaths to get nice machined gutters, hatches, and puzzle scarf joints.

This is the fist model I will offer, followed by the 15’8″ double ender, which is slightly smaller, and two 14’3″ish models – one with a transom and one double ended. I’ll put up design details and side by side comparison of those soon.

In the meantime, here are some renderings.
