The Dory Shop

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada | (902) 640-3005 | info@doryshop.com



It’s the defining feature of a Lunenburg-built Banks dory – the naturally-grown frames or what we dory builders call knees.

Ours are cut from the lower trunk and roots of Hackmatack trees that are pulled from the muck of Nova Scotia swamps, then shaped to fit our boats, always following the grain for maximum strength.
