South Haven Dory plansFree South Haven Dory plans - The South Haven Dory is a one-person rowing boat that is based on lines of the St. Pierre dory, a traditional dory hull shape. The construction method is plywood/epoxy/composite (stitch and glue) with no building mold. It is not an instant boat; there are many steps to go through and the result is a strong yet lightweight hull that uses the best properties of plywood and composite construction. This project is an attempt to create a boat with modern construction methods that has beautiful traditional lines. The design can be built out of three sheets of 1/4 inch plywood with a half sheet or so of 1/2 inch plywood and 1/2x2 inch stock as framing. The wood can be purchased at any building supply store. The bottom is sheathed in a 6 oz fiberglass cloth.
