Geno Mondello’s Dory Shop

I stopped by Geno’s Dory Shop at The Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center yesterday.  Geno is currently working on a 17 foot hand line dory which will be auctioned off to benefit the Gloucester International Dory Race Organization.  The money raised through the raffle will be used to build more dorys.  Last year there were four dories and by the end of this year there will be eight.  The sport is just taking off thanks to the likes of Jimmy Tarantino, Glen Harrington, Katherine Richmond, Skip Levielle, and Kirk Dombrowski along with many other volunteers..

Look for my three part video series with Geno starting tomorrow which talks about the origins of dory racing, different types of dorys and how they are built and other surprises.
