TitleSt. Pierre French Dory
SubjectShip models
Fishing boats
Dories (Boats)
DescriptionThis is the model of a St. Pierre French Type row dory and is patterned after the dories which were built in the factory of Monsieur Dranier who built hundreds of dories for the fishermen of St. Pierre et Miquelon and Newfoundland. This smart looking dory is no longer being built. It should be understood that French row dory of yesteryear was not so crooked in the sheer as the motor flats, erroneously called dories by many people seen in St. Pierre today. As the sterns of these craft do not form a complete "V" but were several inches wide where they join the bottoms, they are not true dories. "Flats" is their correct classification. Exterior: red/white/green. Interior: green with brown trim. Colour on the digital reproduction varies.
