I have been down with Dorys at that level. As long as you can row, do it.

Dory

We saw a Dory down there last week when we were running it. He made it through ok. Don't know his skill level, but I know he didn't have floatation. I think if you run it right Sock would be the only trouble. Run it down the left as much as possible. Beautiful trip last week. Golden leaves, Eagles, down stream wind. On by 10:00 off by 4:00 with motor. Good times. ron.

I own a dory and have gone down Westy many times in it very fun. I agree with caverdan I would only go if the dory is encapsulated or has floatation. Having said that on my first trip down Westy in he dory I forgot to strap down my rear hatch and took the right hand sneak in skull with only one oar.
