To build, or to buy?

That looks a lot like the Gloucester Light Dory which you can get plans pretty easily for online. There is a house on the edge of Joppa that has 2 or 3 of these boats moored up in the marsh and they look great.

Have you considered a Gheenoe? Different animal altogether but could have interesting possibilities for your combinations.
We live in complex times, what with fishing,sailing and skiing seasons overlapping.

Juro, That dory does not have enough stiffness to be a good rowing dory. Too light, too much flex. Nice looking though for a fiberglass mold. I'm sure it is made for easy to handle weekends. If you need a trailer to get it around then get a wooden dory or build one with all your spare time. The proper wooden dory will row sooooo smooth and it will be soooo much more quiet, just the sound of wooden oars against wooden pins.

You might just find it here. Many consider these among the pinnacles of the type.
