"My 1754 McKenzie came out at 290 without an interior. I need to weigh it with the side trays and seats in. I’d bet 350... if you’re carrying 1500 lbs what’s an extra 150-200 for a passenger?"

"I had a 60" by 18" 2x6 framed dolly with carpet on top and steel casters that went right under the center of the boat, then I put chocks under each end when I had it where I wanted it so I could work on it.  Then I was really careful…"

"I have been on 3 flat water trips and it was about 2 hours including launching and stopping on the beach a bit.  Next time I could use my GPS thing on my phone to get a speed, that would be interesting, we could do flat water dory speed trials.…"

Shawn Baker replied to Bodacious Jack's discussion New Dory on the Water
"This probably sounds like a really stupid question.  I've never rowed a dory on "flat" water.  Did you launch and land from the same point, or were you floating down the Willamette? If you went out in a loop, how'd she…"

"Oh nice, just a 4" Beckson hatch.  That's awesome.  It could be at/below the normal water line, but when you have water up to the gunnels, you don't care as long as it helps the boat float back up to normal!I dig those small…"
