This model of a modern Bay of Islands dory by Levi Rose in Burgeo, NL features excellent craftsmanship.
The Bay of Islands Dory is characterized by its flat back end which usually sports an outboard motor and its bright orange and green colour. It is a common sight as you drive along the south shore of the Bay of islands in Newfoundland from Corner Brook to Little Port at the end of Lark Harbour. These dories play a vital role in the local lobster fishery which many locals rely on and they also play a role in other fisheries in the area.
