    Default Garage find Dory sloop

    Just Got this and would love any info anyone can shed on it. I believe it was purchased (new?) in Nova Scotia in the 70s then kept on Cape Cod. Came out of the water in the late 80s-early 90s and has been in a garage ever since. It didn't come with sails, but the rigging, lead ballast, rudder and centerboard are all present.
    I'd love any info on type, maker and suggested oar length.
    I'm planning to row it and sail it around Rhode Island on ponds and perhaps more open water.
    I plan to get it in the water later this summer and see how she handles/how much water she takes on having been out of the water for so long.
    Didn't come with a name, but we'll christen her soon.
    Suggestions welcome as far as where to start with maintenance.
    I'm looking forward to learning more about, caring for and using a wooden boat.

    Looks like a nice pea pod. Definitely not a dory, no transom and no flat bottom.

    My thought too, .... much more similar to a pea pod than any dory. Though not a straight pea pod either with that straight stern post. Pretty boat though!

    Where is Michael (MMD) when you need him. You say she is from Nova Scotia, she does look like a traditional type for there, but I'm drawing a blank on the name (pea pod is an American -Maine- name).
