  Article Content


A dory is a small shallow-draft boat of approximately 15 feet in length. Lightweight and versatile, these boats are used both in the opean sea for commercial fishing applications, as well as in interior river white water rafting[?] versions - which usually seat three to four including the oarsman[?].

Dory is also a nickname. For females, it is usually short for "Doris," "Dorinne" (or "Doreen"), "Dorothy," or "Dorothea" (or "Dorthea"); for males it is most often short for "Theodore."
