Fresh dory course dates!

In the midst of what’s so far been a challenging winter, it’s always therapeutic to think ahead to spring. And one of the sure signs of spring around here is having a new group of would-be dory builders join us for one of our two-week classes!

Following on tradition, we’re offering a spring session of our popular dory building course in the two weeks immediately before Victoria Day weekend. That’s May 6-17, 2013, right here on the waterfront at Lunenburg.

Join our master dory builder, Jay Langford, to build a traditional wooden Banks dory like the ones shown here. We have places for just six participants; a limit we set to ensure as much personal instruction and hands-on participation as possible.

All of the tools and materials are provided, and as always we’ll work in some visits to the shops of other marine artisans in our area.

The course costs $950 – a price that includes hearty daily lunches with Bob and Rose at Greybeard’s Monday to Friday, breaktime snacks with Dory Plug, and a fun launch and send-off ceremony too!

For more information or applications, please contact us at info@doryshop.com or call 902-640-3005

We’d love to have you join us!
