Why the hell did I not buy an enclosed boat sooner! You can't be in any kind of a hurry in this thing, but according to my wife I'm never in a hurry to do ANYTHING, so it all works out!

I can’t remember...do you have an open boat when you want to feel the wind on your hair?

Can we get a photo of what it looks like from the outside looking in, my son would love this boat. In conversation a few days ago he even mentioned once again how much he would love to have that boat that services camp Lawrence.

Is yours fully enclosed? I remember it being open in the back?

I could tell how good an island boat that is—pretty cool design. Hope you've had a chance to get some fishing in these last few mornings!

Thanks for the photos. Looks like you have your work cut out for your self with the sound system up-grades. but if your like myself its probably a labor of love, it never seems to count as work when its up the lake and it your working on your own boat.

One extra question, What powers this motor wise. Thanks ......

Piece of cake...every C-dory should have a 10 inch subwoofer and a 600 watt amplifier! Music is my passion so it's not work to me! 90 HP Yamaha 4 stroke...this boat planes at 9 mph...very happy with it!Name:  20200818_174101.jpeg

How many of these are on the lake? I saw two yesterday, one docked and one out busting through the chop, was interested in how the ride was? Yesterday was pretty snotty, I was averaging about 18-19mph on our ride from Alton up to Meredith. We were going to try to make it back to Alton for the ski show but waited out the storm at Surfside Burger Bar instead.

Only 2 that I'm aware of, but I could be wrong. This one stayed close to Mark this weekend!

I have a 22' Cruiser on West Bear; there's the one on Mark, and a 16' cruiser in the Gulf on Bear. May be one more on East Bear.

If you are considering boats of that style, be sure to check out Parker and Steiger too. There are a few of those in my marina and they seem to be well made though a bit more power hungry than Eastern or C-Dory. If accommodations are a priority, look for a Rosborough RF-246. They are excellent and offer a bit more frills in the cabin. They were made with inboard, outboard and stern drive propulsion.

My MVYC slip limits me to a 24 foot or smaller boat, so that requirement led me to this boat...I'm happy it did! Sitting at home yesterday, my grandson decided that we should be anchored off Bear like some of the other boaters, so we boated across the channel and dropped anchor. He floated in a tube for a while, the took turns jumping off the swim platform and side of the boat. He loved it ...." I never jumped off a boat before!!" His grandmother stayed on our beach and was able to watch him having fun!! He loves this boat as much as I do!

If that's an Aunt Jemima bottle of pancake syrup, you may want to hold on to it, could be worth some $$ in the future...

Finally thought I'd chime in on this thread. I have a 19ft C-Dory Angler I found at the same time we bought our lot on Rattlesnake. It has been a work horse getting people and things out in all sorts of weather. First boat in, last boat out. Not fast but once in the boat you are on island time, what's the hurry.

I am finding the same thing...I'm not really in a hurry to go anywhere. Being out there as long as I have been, I still like to take in the sights...stopping to take pics of things I've seen a thousand times...it doesn't get old to me. This one has a Wallas stove/ heater...will be a game changer for me....I've suffered through some pretty horrific commutes....freezing cold, snowstorms, driving rain, etc. With the sound system I installed, it's like being in a little music studio and even though I don't fly across the lake, I sometimes wish my commute was a little bit longer!
