Went and took a look at it and made some measurements.
From bow to stern, measuring from the top of the boat, the boat is 14' 1'.
The width at the top of the boat measures 66.5" at the oar locks, the floor is 46" wide at the oar locks.
The side wall height measure 24" at the oar locks and at the stern. The bow is 32" if you measure along the tip of the stern. it is 27.5 inches if you measure perpendicular from the floor of the boat straight up to the top. Crappy diagram attached to (hopefully) clarify what I am talking about.
Looking at the information regarding boat specs at High Desert Dories (Dory Designs | High Desert Dories
) it would seem this boat is a little shorter and narrower than the "whitewater" McKenzie River Dory.
What do you guys think of these specs? Is it a class III river runner or a Class I-II fishing drift boat?
It is not clear to me whether the sidewalls on this boat are as tall as a typical whitewater dory. Any info on this would be appreciated.
I got to row it around on a lake for a few minutes today. It rowed really nicely. It did have a little water leaking into
the bottom by the time I was done. I'd say a few ounces of water in ten minutes of rowing it around. Not sure how normal this is for a wooden boat?
