captjim46 is on a distinguished road
I recently purchased a 2004, 26M with a 50 HP 4 stroke Suzuki. As mentioned by someone earlier, the boat is lightly constructed (so it can be towed with a standard size vehicle), but it does use quality materials. The workmanship on my boat appears to be above average. When the water ballast is in, the boat is self righting, and there is enough floatation to make the boat unsinkable. Having downsized from a 32' full keel boat, I find it very desirable to park this boat behind my garage, rather than paying slip fees. With an eye on the weather, I would not hesitate to cruise the islands.
