The book was prepared specifically for the dory enthusiast. The readers will find lots of interesting information about the dory boats inside. The author of the publication made an excellent and successful effort to amplify and gather in a single volume all the scattered information on those boats. Those interested in this type of boats know how difficult it is to find the relevant data and technical info.

That is exactly the reason why this publication gained so much of popularity. In addition to the boat designers, boat builders and sailors, the book will be of practical use for the modelers who will definitely benefit from the detailed descriptions of the features of the dory boats and will be able to use that when preparing their own models. The materials contained in the book are arranged in three big parts.

The first part gives some introductory historical background. The second part depicts the laydown and construction as well as the materials used for construction of the boats. Finally, the third part provides the detailed plans for the boats, covering many different arrangements, types and sizes of the boats, from small to the relatively big boats.
