    What makes it a dory? The stern looks a bit dory-like but it's hard to see.

    I wonder if Daniel Noyes knows it, he's the dory man.

    There has been previous posts about that dory Mr Sibley, i think all the info i had on that stored, was on the laptop that died, you might get some luck pasting the photo in a google search. I do recall it was a one off, i do not recall the designer.

    I found a thread through Google image search but no information about the design.

    Big ones with lots of sheer are often adaptations of St. Pierres.

    It looks a bit Swampscott

    done large.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    I'd say a one off based on the Swampscott dory. Looks like rounded sides to me.

    Looks a lot like an enlarged Selway-Fisher 16' Fisher Swampscott.

    On page 93 of Chapelle's American Small Sailing Craft is shown a two masted sailing dory with a similar cabin, the the sides are straight as in a Banks dory, said to be popular with Boston's Italian fisherman. -- Wade

    Look to Annie Hill's books. She is emphaticly not anything like a Swampscott, as she's slab sided like a banks dory or the St. Pierre modificaiton.

    Enlarged Swampscott. Looks like it's stretched more than it's widened, different ratios. Lots of room for huge floatation compartments fore and aft.

    Thinking of building it Peter?

    Could also be an enlarged Swampscott. My guess is 30 feet. What do you all think?

    Boston power dory? There was some in the back of the dory book. Good performance on low hp and load carriers, but it would seem that the model is too slow for todays generation.....time is money etc.....

    I see now that I was wrong about the planking. She appears more stretched Swampscotty.

    At first I could have sworn that she was a modification of the two-masted fishing dory shown on page 93 of Chapelles's "American Small Sailing Craft". I know there used to be one in Oregon. But that one is a Banks-type, with straight sides. The bow and whole profile are very similar. Same boat re-drawn with curved side frames? That dory has been seen before on this forum. Anyone know the story?

    Edit: Sorry! Completely skipped over wtarzia's post above!
