If I could afford a 20' Tolman standard(when it ever went up for sale), I would buy it in a heart beat. I do not have the space/tools/skills to build one either.
Other ideas include;
1. 20'bayrunnner or klamath,
2.Oregon surf type dory(sea worthy but will pound hard)
3.A set net skiff hull(hopefully with some dead rise)
4. Or This guy. http://portland.craigslist.org/clc/boa/2365962772.html (I hate the pump idea and would put an out board bracket on.)
I know it is probably best to fish my 16'duroboat this summer as a 3500.00 budget could get me into a scary boat if I am not careful. In general if you could give me some ideas that would be great. Next year my budget will be around 7000.00 Ideally of course. Any thing near the 10000.00 range and I shop for an efficient pocket trawler instead.
Thanks in advance Guys. I am feeling pressure to handroll out of a bigger skiff like the Clippercraft in the link. Just don't want to buy something stupid when I could wait a year and maybe get what I want(the I do like Clippercrafts).
I just need Simplicity Seaworthy and Economy.
