I have been saving for, and looking at buying something more suitable than my riverboat for the few ocean trips I try to take each year.
Generally we go to Homer, and stay for a week either in Seldovia or Tutka bay, I would like to spend some time in PWS and maybe SE occasionally for deer and big trees.
Living in the Interior means I have to shop and look on the internet, fortunately it is at my fingertips, however there is nothing like a hands on look at boats and talking to owners at the dock to find the answers to make the right choice.
I have always admired the C-Dorys but just wondering what the folks that use them have to say......because of my proximity to the ocean, most of my trips will be week long, so I dont need or desire high speed to be back to the harbor the same day or the next night. I dont want a trawler hull either.
What I am wondering about is making a trip across Cook Inlet or out to Montague-Hinchinbrook with a C-Dory, I know they are capable enough. I just wonder if there are times (3 foot chop), when you decide not to go out because of the conditions and presumably slower travel times.............?
Looking forward to any and all advice.........! thanks, John
