I love the 16 ft cruiser and can see myself exploring many of the waterways around me over extended weekends. The ability to cruise at a speed fast enough to cover reasonable distances and economical enough for it to be a reality is very appealing.

They make them about 2 miles from my office and there are lots of them here in Washington..Nice little boats, but they are true " dories" meaning no deadrise at the transom..They are pounders in a chop. The upside to that hull is they plane with less power.

Read the book River Horse..William Least Heat-Moon ran the 22 footer from New York to the Pacific on the rivers of the US. Interesting book.

Boy, that's a heck of an upgrade, $27,000 for 6' of boat. Does that $52,000 include a kicker motor and gold in the cabin where the sink an stove are? Saw some of these a couple of years ago at Lake Powell and they just cruise along with significantly less power than I had. Intriguing little boats.

A lot of them in Alaska. They're a balsa core boat, so you'll see small motors pushing the light hull. I think they're really nice looking boats, but I've never ridden on one.

I ran a 26' C-Dory as a charter boat for a while in Alaska. Definitely a rough ride in the slop, but overall a tough little boat. Flat on the bottom.

I think they are mainly into their catamaran line - sure is a lot of them out there. (Some old ones too).

I see a lot of older folks cruising the coast of maine in them. They are very cheap to run, have all the needed features for a long day or weekend. I REALLY like them, but I just dont see the 22 as an offshore fishing boat- its a cruiser to me through and through.
