Default Cape Horn boats

Are there any Cape Horn boat owners? What size do you have?

I spend a lot of time on western Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair and haven't seen one up here yet, not saying that there isn't 1 or 2.

The hull is foam filled. They could probably add more storage in the floor, but for Great lakes fishing, there's plenty of storage in the console. No real need for the bait tank/station unless you're wanting it for minnows for perch fishing. Waaaaaay overkill IMO.
I think the hull would do very well with Great Lakes wave frequency.

I bet they wouldn't. 😁 They are at capacity now and turning away business.

My buddy has a 32 with 350 Zukes being built now. He just sold his 16' 32 XS. Nice boats.

Very cool? Did you ride on his old one? What dealer did he get it from? What options did he get?

Yes, I fished his other boat and was very impressed. I'm not sure exactly on his options. I do know Gemlux carbon outriggers, Twin garmins, semi fancy stereo and two tone gel-coat.

They are foam filled like a Boston Whaler and boston whaler has no storage there either but no problem selling at a premium price. They sell a TON of boats but CC's are not really popular in the Midwest. Many have never heard of them.

Please don't put Boston Whaler and Cape Horn in the same sentence. 😁 No comparison. Completely different boats
