Cam, Yeah, they are purrty. A finished boat built by the previous owner, Cecil Lange, was said to be a work of art, and I expect the new owners (he sold to his boatbuilding crew) build every bit as nice. I don't think any of the yard-built boats priced out quite like a modern day Morris or Hinckley, but they weren't cheap either (MUCH more expensive than a comparable-length PSC, for instance).

Many of the boats were sold as kits, so the used market has to be evaluated carefully for quality (and quirky interior layouts).
