Swampscott Dory (18 Inch Length)
Swampscott dories were the most highly refined variant of the dory type ever built, making them the aristocrats of dories. Originally built for inshore fishing and lobstering along the coast of Massachusetts, their speed, ease of handling and low cost soon made them popular as recreational sailboats. Developed when clear pine boards were cheap and plentiful, the Swampscott dory had only four strakes (planks) to a side, saving labor and permitting rapid construction.
Simple, quick to build, and makes a lovely display model. This is a good kit for the inexperienced builder. Features basswood and mahogany construction, planked hull.
Scale: 1″ = 1′ (1:12)
