Benford Dory (like Badger)

Hi all,

Has anyone here have any experience with any of the "Sailing Dory" line from designer Jay Benford (like "Badger" from Annie Hill's book "Voyaging on a Small Income")?

The only info I have is from that book, his website, and a brief phone call with Mr. Benford where he said *basically* the same thing as is written in the book.

I guess what I'm mostly looking for is feedback on handling, performance, comfort under sail, etc.

I realize this post is over a year old but I hope you see it.

You said you contacted Benford. I've been trying to as well and the number I got is no longer in use.

Do you still have contact info? I'm looking for dory plans.
