If you build it to plan it will self bail when empty. Problem is none of us build to plan and our dories end up way over weight. I raised the deck one inch and still need to plug the scuppers with people in it. But it is amazing how stable it is and I have had over 1000 pounds of people many times.

Finally got the 60hp Suzuki installed and splashed the boat a couple of days ago. Couldn’t be happier...

That turned out great!

Looks very practical, with lots of room to move around, too.

The boat looks great. You certainly did a fantastic job on her. (Very envious :D). You will have to let us know how she handles.
Alan.
