Instructor: Graham McKay
Using plans and historic patterns the class will build one 17’ Banks Dory using traditional methods. The class will build the dory from start to finish with students taking part in every step of the process. The class concludes with a launch (once the ice is out of the river!). At the conclusion of the class, one of the class members is chosen by raffle to take the dory home for the cost of materials (about $1,200).
