Can’t Beat This Place For Fun

14 mins


Can a person be bewitched by a boat? The answer might be yes if that boat is a wooden, whitewater dory with an overabundance of personality and history. Martin Litton, a legend in the conservation world, dreamed up this elegant, sexy boat that was also responsive, nimble, graceful and could handle the rapids of the Grand Canyon while carrying supplies for a multi-week trip. What other boat could be destroyed, resurrected and grace the river another day? Brad Dimock, who once worked for Litton, carries on the tradition of crafting dories by hand in Flagstaff, Arizona alongside a crew who has also fallen prey to the siren lure of the dory.
