Hello-

I've been a fan of the c-dory for years and have been looking for the time to buy, and now is the time. My son is ten and I am 50, the c-dory promises a lot of adventure. I plan on having this boat in my slip by this spring. The goal is traveling the Mississippi, possibly the canal up to Chicago, Lake Michigan, trailer in up to Minnesota. I believe the 22 cruiser is right for me. The first question I have is; what do I need to know about saltwater Dorys? I have only owned freshwater boats and motors, should I limit my search to freshwater boats only, or can there be crossover.

There can be a cross over. Just make sure the previous owner has done the maintenance. Scroll down and on the righthand side of the screen there is a list of C-Brats' C-Dories for sell or go up to forums and scroll to the bottom for a little better breakdown. There are several listed as freshwater only boats. But don't let that stop you from checking out others. Good luck and be safe out there. Very Happy

Thank you. I really like the bimini top, and the camper back accessories. Shade would be imperitive. I'm often attracted to the Dorys from the early 90s.
