Swampscott Racing Dory

  • Availability: In Stock
  • Pub No.: 7794

Designed by Charles D. Mower

The sailing dory, properly designed, makes as fine a boat as anyone could wish. The so-called “Swampscott” style—that is, with rounded sides—makes the better and more stable boat as the common Banks fishing dory has little stability under sail unless heavily loaded. Here we have plans of one of the famous Massachusetts racing dories that were so popular a number of years ago and are still sailed in some sections. They are not as stylish as they once were but they make very fast boats and are lively to sail. This particular boat is fairly narrow and is quite easy to drive but she is not suitable for a family of six who wish to go out for a quiet drift around on a Saturday afternoon.
