A 5,5 m Bank´s Dory built by Hannu´s boatyard plans of 6 mm plywood. A simple and quick process, can be made in three days. Really light and fast rowing boat. This Dory is not a very good sailing boat but steady and safe for a beginner. The bow is high so the wind tends to slow it down when tacking. It´s a bit cramped and narrow and the sides are low so waves tend to splash in. The lake is in Northernmost Finnish Lapland 14 km from the road. Me and my wife spent four weeks there in June 2012. No mosquitoes yet and we met other people only once. We ate fish every day.
