New C-Dory model at Tacoma Boat Show
Had to share this from C-Brats site:
Kitsap Marina announced today that they would be debuting the newest C-Dory model at the Tacoma Dome Boat Show. Based on the popular 16' models built be C-Dory, the new model would be available for viewing all during the show.
The special model "4109" will be available as either a Cruiser or an Angler, and according to General Manager Orrin Nelson the purpose of the new boat is to give added flexibility, economy and slow speed handling.
"We wanted to be able to achieve hull speed efficiently, as well as mid range speeds. With variable displacement power, we have the option to run at various speeds." Nelson said.
Sales Manager Matt Gurnsey was excited by the ease of docking. "If there is a downside to the small C-Dory product, it may be it's shallow draft, which can allow cross winds to make docking a challenge. With the Wide Track engine placement, and aggressive four blade props, this boat will be much better handling in tight corners."
"The 4109 is the boat of today, with features never found in a small boat before." Nelson added. "The 4 x 4 drive train is a departure from the norm, but we think that it has tremendous potential."
The Tacoma Dome Boat Sale runs April 2 through 5.
Here's a Sneak Peak:

IS THAT FOUR MOTORS? Who would want to worry about maintenance on four motors for a boat that size, are they kidding?
April Fools Spoof
This was an April Fools Spoof they tried on the c-dory site, now there trying it on YOU.
I understand the new model gets about 23 nm/gal. In a pinch, the fuel can be mixed 50/50 with water for extended cruising. It will plane at 3 mph, but top speed is limited to 68 mph. The tuned outboards are so quiet, an engines running indicator is provided, so you know when they are on. In this economy, it is a shame they are going for under $10,000 for the package.
