Lightweight and versatile, dories are small, shallow-draft boats with flat bottoms, high sides and sharp bows. Easy to build, thanks to their simple lines, and able to withstand the rugged ocean, dories were the backbone of the fishing industry, both in Nova Scotia and around the world. One of Shelburne, Nova Scotia's great claims to fame is the town's rich dory building traditions; a skill which still survives today thanks to the Dory Shop Museum.
