I've got three sheets of ply (24') set up with new white paint. Lofting now the 20' Banks dory in The Dory Book. Super simple offsets. Stem, five stations/frames, transom. That's it. I want to add 6" to spacing between frames to make a 22' longer and leaner dory. I am not stretching the transom or stem to frame spacing. Not changing beam. Longer, leaner must always be better. Fingers crossed.
