Dr. John Dovrary Wins Stickelback Dory

Dr. John Dovrary was thrilled upon receiving word of winning the grand prize in this year’s Door County Maritime Museum boat raffle which was drawn Oct. 11 at Pumpkin Patch Festival in Egg Harbor. This year’s vessel was a sleek Stickelback Dory, long and lean sail-rowing craft. Volunteer instructors Bob Schottmuller, David Morgan, and Jerry McNamara selected the Stickleback Dory as it is a fine example of a glued seam, lapstrake-plywood construction in the Swampscott tradition. “I have been purchasing raffle tickets for ten years in support of the Door County Maritime Museum,” said Dovrary, a dentist in Shawano. “What a wonderful surprise to win the boat on my 71st birthday during our yearly trip to Door County!”
