    Your mate bought her Foo, Rich123.
    Richies enthusiasm combined with the dory will be a hard combination to beat.

    The waters in a 20 mile radius of Skinningrove will be noted for their lack of cod shortly...

    Delighted for you both. Rich has got a belter and rumor has it you had a tear in your eye Alan lol. Fully agree on the cod stocks being in danger around Skinny now, That is a lethal combination with rich's enthusiasm and such a class vessel.
    Just waiting for my invite from Rich for pointing him your way Alan lol.

    I promised Richie I would post some pics and info up;

    The earlier dorys have very low gunnels (gunwales) so do not catch the wind like the later models and make excellent fishing platforms. The cathedral hull is a copy of the famous Boston Whaler which can be chopped into pieces without compromising its integrity;

    [​IMG]

    They are much sought after and difficult to find. They also have a major problem which is water contamination between the hull and deck. This was the case with mine, but I knew that before I brought her up from Anglesey in Wales. So I set about rebuilding her to marine spec;

    This is a pic of some of the waterlogged stuff that came out;
    [​IMG]

    I left one deck bearer in for reference;
    [​IMG]

    Then fitted the others;

    New deck made from 18mm marine ply screwed onto deck bearers and foamed into place;

    Two coats of glass fibre later;

    Later she had a stainless prop fitted with doel fins to the engine. Hydraulic steering and a Lowrance combined plotter, sounder with a Navionics Gold card and a MMSI radio.

    I advertised this boat for sale as 'the best sports dory in the UK'
    That is because it is the best sports dory in the UK.
