What would you buy for $100,000?
Oh Yeah, Dickensons. I think of Dickens as producing 4 very different types of boats. They were one of the last production wooden boat builders, building in wood well into the 1970''s. Then they built inexpensive glass boats with dated design, cramped interiors and miserable performance. Then they built Farr 37''s which were out and out IOR era race boat and too stripped out for even my sensibilities. And lastly they built some very expensive and beautifully finished boats but poor performing. None of these would make my list of recommendations for a $100,000 cruising boat for the Chesapeake.
