Hello I'm from Eastern Pa. Would like to know more about the Sleds and Dory's that I've stared at for too many years. I hope to meet many of you on this forum.

Welcome to the forums!

I'm not 100% sure what you mean by sled, I've heard that used as a generic term for a boat, similar to rig. As in, " That's a nice sled you have there!" Though now that I looked closer at names and descriptions, it looks like white water jet rigs seem to be called sleds as well. Is that more what you're thinking?

As far as Dory's, there are a few plans available.

That is correct. While I don't know who coined the term but it seems that allot of the northwest flat bottom river skiff were coarsely refered to as sleds. Maybe it has to do with how they ride when in trim.

Good to know. Thanks!

What information are you seeking? Lots of incredibly experienced people on here. I'm pretty new at the building aspect so i'm soaking up as much information as possible, as such i'm spending a lot of time here.

edit: Nevermind, found your other thread with your questions. :)
