Fishing Rowboat – Vermont Fishing Dory

I’ve been watching Adirondack guide boats since the late 1970s, and recently got serious about looking for a good used kevlar / fiberglass model from the Adirondack Guide Boat Company of Vermont ( A clean used Vermont Fishing Dory (one foot shorter and a bit wider than their guide boat) turned up for sale in Maine. What better excuse to take a trip to the Maine coast? We brought it home last week, and it has been out rowing on Alma Pond twice. Both times a Bald Eagle flew overhead, and one time a pair of Great Blue Herons flew by. It is a wonderful boat to row – fast and stable for fishing.

    My neighbor has a Vermont Dory from the Adirondack Guide Boat Company built a few months ago.
    He gave me a “test drive” in it last week and I think I will be buying it from him. It has the sailing package.
    Have you been enjoying yours?
