I am a sucker for free to almost free boats, so when I saw this little Dyer Dhow Midget online I had to have it. I don't know the age of the boat, but I understand they have been in production in fibreglass maybe as far back as the 40's. Bronze fittings and wood rig which appears to match the mast partner seem to indicate this could be a fairly old boat, or it's possible the sprit rig was a retrofit.
I think what you have there is technically a Dyer Midget which is about 8 ft LOA. The Dyer Dhow, which I have, is about 9ft and the Dyer Dink is about 10ft. They are quite popular for frostbiting with clubs up and down the West shore of the LI Sound with active fleets of Dhows and Dinks.
There's a Facebook group with a devoted following to the Dyer's.
Enjoy the journey ...it's worth it!
