The Cape Cod is a motor dory based upon the Swampscott model with it's flat but rockered bottom panel and 4 planks per side. Unlike the sailing Swampscott, the bottom is kept fairly wide aft so that she can take a reasonable size of outboard (up to 35 hp). The plans show details for both the simple stitch and tape and clinker ply methods of construction and the standard fit-out shows a foredeck plus narrow side decks and storage both fore and aft. She could be fitted out with a cuddy or small cabin etc.
LOA 16' (4.88m); Beam 6' (1.83m); Approx. wht. depending on fit-out 300 lbs (136 kg).
