The Dory Shop

The Dory Shop in Lunenburg is currently seeking an experienced boat builder for a significant project repairing/rebuilding a Concordia Yawl. Applicants with less than two years’ experience building and/or repairing wooden boats need not apply –  experience in the wooden boat building industry is a requirement and preference will be given to the person who has the most experience with this type of project.

The successful candidate, in addition to having experience in the industry, will be self-motivated and keen to get the job done and possess his or her own tools; won’t be afraid of hard work on cold (or hot!) days; will be able to work unsupervised and step into a leadership role should more builders be required to assist with the job; will posses strong problem-solving skills; will be equally willing to do the mundane and the exciting. The ability to drive a standard shift pick-up truck would be an added benefit.

Contact Trudi at info@doryshop.com for more information regarding the company, the position or the current project.
