What would you buy for $100,000?

On this question I have to ask if you get paid by the word or what? Your opinion of Dickersons is just the kind of nonsense that grates on my nerves. Expertise aside any boat at any price is 100 times better than none at all. My point is that hundreds of people have been very happy with a boat that by your opinion dosen''t even rate a mention.Used boats of older vintage have a lot to offer in allowing acessibility to a greater portion of the population. The Dickerson company died because it mistakenly tryed to compete in the market you prefer. The last production boat the 37 sloop lost in the annual race to a 1963 strip planked mahogany ketch hard chined and loaded for crusing becuase of seamanship and luck. The 37 was the best ever produced by dickerson for its real market. Regular people who just love to sail.
