Meet Pierre's pride and joy. It's a 6 meter "Trawl Dory" that he had custom built by the Dory Shop in Lunenburg Nova Scotia. He had it built without any rigging (mast and sails) and modified the rudder by adding a yoke and steering wheel forward of mizzen making it a Dundee (aka YAWL).
Pierre equipped it with oars and a Torqeedo Travel 1003 motor, that sits in a motorbox allowing to tilt while under sail. The motor is locked so that he can use the dory rudder to steer the boat while under power.
As for the sail power, the main sail is a Splitsail and he also has a jib.
Pierre is getting ready to install a brand new Spade Skrew Mooring for his Dory, that he purchased from us.
