The Dory Shop

The Dory Shop has been building dories and other wooden boats in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia since 1917. The dories were designed as tenders for the schooners of the Grand Banks fishing fleet. The shop is still producing these simple but functional, handmade row boats from local woods. A few power tools have been added but otherwise little has changed in over a century.
