re Dickerson 37

I'm considering a Dickerson 37. Is anyone familiar with the sailing characteristics of these shoal-draft boats- particularly to windward and offshore?
Thanks,
Ed

Edge-glued and nailed construction, originally. Do OK on the Bay. Not great to windward. Don't believe they're designed for offshore use but, of course, any boat afloat can make an offshore voyage, given determination, preparation, and a great deal of luck!

There are occasionally some very good deals to be had on these boats.

They came in several configurations. Generally the "good deals" are the older wooden versions. They later made fiberglass version that is considerable higher priced. Also came as center cockpit ketch or aft cockpit sloop options.

All D37's are fiberglass. Some rigged as ketches others as sloops/cutters. Built in Trappe, Md between 1981 and 1987. Perfect boat for the Chesapeake Bay or coastal Florida. At least 25 of them still documented. I wouldn't have anything else (well maybe a pristine Bermuda 40).
