Custom Options

  • Rear Footwells, Cargo Area Options.  Choose between a regular full sized rear footwell, a self bailing, partial depth, footwell cargo area, or a large hatch in place of the rear footwell.
     
  • Hatch Layout.  We can work with you to design the hatch layout to fit your packing needs.  Some might want to offset hatches to fit longer items, and/or no front or rear cross hatches, to make room for bigger side hatches.  Hatches can have shelves and we can even build in a cooler.

Standard Features

  • Bow and Stern Doublers (3/16).  Stronger than just a normal extrusion.
     
  • Durable Flush Closing Hatches.  Eddyline Dories have hatches you don't have to worry about walking on. The hinges are welded onto the hatch to eliminate a line of screws/rivets on the deck.  Our tray gutter system keeps the hatches back in from the edges of the deck and flush when closed.
     
  • Flat Middle Deck and Rounded Corners.  We design our decks to be a smoothed over continuous plane for comfort and safety.
     
  • Inner Hull and Chine Doublers.  Dependent on bulkhead spacing, with vertical ribs where appropriate.
     
  • Sealed Ribs.  The floor is framed with ribs that don't communicate water from one compartment to another.
     
  • Multiple Placement Oar Blocks.  For oarlock placement adjustability.
     
  • Welds Instead of Screws. Where possible we'd prefer to weld on the small details that are often screwed in: hinges, grab line loops, grab bars, rowers well footbar, tie downs for the spare oars, etc.  Our goal is less holes and less potential for leaks.
     
  • Sides .100 6061, Bottom 6061 .125
     
  • Appropriately Sized Hatch Openings.  All hatch openings are, at the minimum, the size of a milk crate with a hand on each side, so you could get a milk crate into the hatch.
     
  • Comfortable Front Footwell.  We've made the standard front footwell more comfortable by rounding everything out and giving the upright part of the bench a pleasant tilt.
