I am wanting to build a dory soley for rowing with up to four and gear ( we don't try to take everything in the house with us ) for a few days and nights on and off the water. Two adults and two children although one of them is really adult sized. I have been looking at a gunning dory at 19', or gun dory as the designer calls it. A swampscott dory in the 18'to 20' range. What I am really wanting though is a surf type dory. My requirements are that it be Stitch and glue or glued lapstrake type construction.
What should I be looking for as far as max beam and waterline beam? Most of our travels are on some large rivers and lakes. Our lakes can develope into a nasty picture in a short time.
Does anyone have any information on any quality dory kits or very inclusive and detailed plans out there that will allow a novice boat builder to feel confident, that sounds like what I may be looking for? I would prefer the kit.
