Dories (Boats)
DescriptionThis is the model of the Newfoundland row dory and is patterned after the dories which were designed and perfected by the brothers John and Henry Monk of Monkstown, Placentia Bay. This dory was often mistaken for the Lunenburg dory owing to the fact that like the Nova Scotian dory she did not have rubbers or rubbing streaks outside her gunwales. There were differences however between the two in rake, flare and sheer and while the "Lunenburger" carried a raised gunwhale forward, the "Monk" did not. Placentia Bay fishermen claimed that no other type dory was superior to the "Monk" for general seaworthyness. Exterior: yellow with green bottom. Interior: yellow with green and blue trim.
