Re: Iain Oughtred Dories
Erik, from what I understand those were some of Iain's early efforts. You can probably still get the plans directly from him I suppose. I think they have been dramatically surpassed by his later open-water rowboat designs which have been much more influenced by Nordic boat types like faerings and yoles. Iain has pretty much left dories behind, and personally, I'd never own a dory again either. The North Seas boats are infinitely more to my liking for rough-water handling.

Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
