  7. Re: Best rowboat for 2 adults, 1 child and 1 large dog

    The Northeast Dory is surprisingly very small in terms of volume for its length. Something to keep in mind when comparing other boats to it.

    "Pleasant" is subjective. It rows much nicer than the Sea Pearl. I just put down about 10miles in her at an average of 2.25kts, give or take. It was... more pleasant than the Sea Pearl. But less...
