This beautiful 15-foot rowing dory slips through the water, lets the fish-hungry angler sneak up on those big ones.

This dory is a natural for the man who likes a bit of exercise and appreciates the simplicity and silence of a well-designed rowboat. A narrow bottom, tapered at both ends, enables her to slice through the water with a minimum of effort and flaring sides make her safe and dry in a chop. "Pod", with a beam of 52 inches, has an overall length of 15 feet, 5 inches and is 11 feet, 6 inches on the waterline. Three pieces of marine plywood make up the sides and bottom and no frames are required. This makes boatbuilding about as simple as it ever gets and the result is a light, clean hull with fewer places for rot to develop. However, for those who feel better with conventional framing, optional frames are included in the drawings.
