Lowell has studied at the WoodenBoat School with Geoff Burke, and others, for about 20 years. He mostly builds traditional lapstrake, and has done a great job here. The boat has many Culler touches, including the paint details, natural crook knees, beading, etc. Lowell has built the boat, spars, sail, sailing gear, and rigging. The only thing he didn't build were the oars, which will be Shaw & Tenney.Spec's are :

Old Wharf Dory, AVAILABLE NOW, 10/2014 - MAJOR 20% PRICE REDUCTION!!
On the shore of Gull Pond, after sea trials.
The Old Wharf Dory is a modern version of the Grand Banks fishing dory, well suited for rowing along shore. I developed the lines by combining and refining the lines from the 16’ Lowell Coast Guard dory and Phil Bolger’s Gloucester Gull. The length over all is 15’6”, the same as the gull and the Lowell dory. Beam, both overall and on the bottom, is 6” wider than the Gull, giving the boat much more initial stability than the Gull. Depth amidship is right between the two, giving the boat a more lively sheer than the Lowell dory. Transom width is also between the two.

LOA - 15’6”, Beam - 4,6”, weight approximately 150 Lbs.

Materials used include : LLoyds approved 9 mm Okoume marine plywoos for the bottom and topsides , Sapele marine ply for the transom, Locust transom framing, midship framing, stem, breasthook, oarlock blocks. Exterior and insude bottom sheathed with Dynel cloth and MAS epoxy, and painted with Epiphanes Marine enamel. Interior oiled, botton non-skid. Price includes a pair of Shaw & Tenney 8’ spruce oars with leathers. All bronze hardware.

Here is a link to a video of the sea trials on You Tube.

Price, $6,000.00 ---- REDUCED TO $4,800.00.
