The Dory


The Newfoundland dory is a flat-bottomed boat with flaring sides and a small stern. They were rowed but, in spite of the fact that they had no keel, they could also be sailed.

From "The Squid Jiggin' Ground" - "There's a red ranting Tory out here in a dory, / A-runnin' down Squires on the Squid Jiggin' Ground".

Hello Tudorw,
I have been enjoying your pictures for a few weeks now, and this photo of the dory is a perfect example of "less is more." Just love the subtle tones of this photo. The word "pristine" comes to mind.
