    Default Grand banks dory 12.5 foot

    Has anyone on here built this version of the grand banks dory? We built it out of the Gardner Dory Book plans. Has to be one of my favorite boat building books. Have a couple questions.

    What do people on here suggest for the gunwale these days? A scarfed piece of 1x1 oak?

    which version?

    if it is a dory for pleasure use with a solid inner rail, no outer rub rail is really necessary, if the boat will be battered and see hard use at the rail oak is fine, might want to hit the oak with coopernol or equivalent before installing especially if you are not using white oak.
