The text content of our publications are not photo-facsimiled; all of our products are newly typeset for excellent readability. All of our illustrations are digitally enhanced for clarity and printing brightness. The books in both our Libraries have a highly useful red-ribbon bookmark bound in. (Once you have read a book with a bookmark, you won't want to do without one again!.) All text blocks, including those for Booklets, are printed on 70 lb. cream-coloured paper for reduced print-through and higher opacity. If the book is from the nineteenth or early twentieth century, its appearance is as close to the original as possible. All of our publications have a consistent design so that they will represent a collectible library.

18 ft Cape Cod Dory (Pub. No. 5018)

(For Oars, Sail or Inboard Motor)
Long a favorite with commercial fishermen who meet all kinds of weather far out at sea, the true dory is a pracital boat for inland lakes as well. It combines many advantages, notably its roominess, its stanchness, and the ease with which it can be handled and launched in the surf. The original dory design had no thwarts, so that a number of the boats could be neste don the deck of a fishing schooner. This one, shown in the pespective drawing, is 18 feet long.

Balboa--A 17 1/2 ft Pacific Dory (Pub. No. 5028)

by Hi Sibley

This staunch dory is a good model for the amateur to build because with the flat bottom and straight sides no problems are presented in construction that demand special experience. This "Balboa Dory" makes no claims for beauty of line, but is about as inexpensive as one can build in a roomy and satisfactory craft. The original is now in its third season (as of 1938). It has never shipped any appreciable amount of water in its three trips to Catalina Island, 28 miles offshore from its home port. Like all dories with their peculiarly narrow bottoms, it rolls easily in a calm sea when passengers move about, but by virtue of this very design a rolling sea does not affect it as much as other types.
