Plans to build the 17' Haystack Beach Pacific Surf Dory

Named for the famous Haystack Beach in Oregon, this handy sized surf dory is suitable for any coastline in the world. I took the lines from a century old surf dory like the one shown on the right, and redesigned it using modern materials and methods, a lot lighter and stronger than the original, so it can be very easily built in your garage or back yard and used for what these dories do best, launch through the surf to go fishing where no one else can get to. If I lived along the South Texas coast, the outer banks of North Carolina, or just about any other coastline in the world, this would be my choice for a surf crasher.

About Surf Dories

Plans to build a surf dory boat

All along every coast in the world, boats are launched through the surf to safely transition through the surf zone and into the open ocean. This takes some specialized designs to perform both well in the extreme surf lines and also handle both smooth and rough conditions outside the surf zone. Enter the surf dory. This is the ideal boat for these kinds of rough conditions, while being eonomical, safe and able to carry enormous loads. Whether commercial or just a fun pasttime, launching through the surf frees you from a limited range near only launch ramps in developed harbors and gives you a freedom to launch and fish where you want, not where everyone else is.
