The lines of this dory window box were drawn from scaled plans of the "Centennial". The "Centennial" is the oldest surviving example of an American fishing dory. In 1876, to celebrate the United States' first centennial, Alfred Johnson made the first lone crossing of the North Atlantic. He left Gloucester on June 15 in a small customized dory he named the "Centennial", after 66 days, he docked at Liverpool, his destination. The "Centennial" is now part of the maritime collection at the Cape Ann Museum.
