Plans to build the 17' [4.9 M] Tillamook Pacific Power Dory

I designed this little dory for a customer who wanted a rugged, stable boat he could keep in his garage and take out in choppy water to go fishing and crabbing. The Tillamook fits the bill perfectly. It is a traditional full bow lines Pacific Power dory that'll plow through the rough stuff with ease, and pop up on a plane with minimal power. Pacific power dories aren't only for the Pacific Northwest, they launch through the surf, operate on rivers or lakes, even zip through shallow flats anywhere in the world.

About Pacific Power Dories

A lot of my customers hail from the Pacific Northwest. Along that coast, a special type of dory has been developed by fishermen over the years. These dories have proven themselves as rugged, and capable in some of the choppiest water anywhere. They're still used for commercial fishing and by sport fishermen and boaters wanting to get out in any weather. Pacific power dories differ from other dories in that they have wide transoms with little rocker in the stern. This makes them better as power boats, getting up on a plane easier than other types of dories. They're able to mount bigger engines than their East coast cousins. Want a good, sturdy boat that'll handle heavy loads in any weather? Well, a Pacific Power Dory just might be the boat for you.
