|This traditional type rowing boat with shoal draft flat bottom and rounded topsides has long been popular in Europe and the U.S.A. The design makes an interesting project for the amateur builder as the construction method is not difficult. The sides can be planked in either lapstrake (planks overlap) or carvel ( planks butted along their edges). Solid lumber or plywood can be used for the planks. Also can be cold molded.
The 14' Rowing Dory on this page was built by Pavlo-Bini-Brazil.
Plans complete with instructions and full-size patterns for the frames and transom. The Dory 14 is a row boat, but the plans show an alternative transom for an outboard up to 5 hp.
