There is another one on CL for sale in Maine. Does anyone have any input on how these boats handle the rough stuff?

i went and looked at the other one thats for sale on maine craigslist, was all set to buy it then the deal on selling my boat fell through and i wound up deciding to keep it, but the one in maine would be a steal for anyone interested in one, they are a huge boat for 28 feet, and the one in maine is set up extremely well for tuna fishing and the owner had done a ton of work to it and almost everything in it was new, its on uncle henrys in maine in the commercial boats and equipment section,

Stop what you're thinking Gordon.

28's are too small for 6 pack charters. (Don already talked me out of it).

Any thoughts on a nice 28 BHM with a 210 Cummins pot hauler & twin anchors. Great for charter. It will be a bit north of 20 k. local boat.

Fellas I'm really looking for someone who has been out in the slop in this boat. I'm gonna move to a new boat at the end of 2013 and I'm back and forth between a 28-30ft down east or a 26cc cape cod marine. Thanks in advance.

Mike, what is your budget. Guys here love to shop with other people's money, myself included, lol! I had a Seaworthy 28, (BHM) it was a great boat fwiw.

Cape cod 26's are bad ass rigs for a center console. Always wanted one. Fished on one this summer and the thing is a tank and its got some balls to boot. There was one on craigslist that was really well set up for about 50k cant find it though.

I just bought a cape dory as the bhm's were all beyond what I could afford and am not crazy about an engine box. The general marines look like one hell of a boat but they too were a bit pricey. I heard many good things on the cape dory and the newer low hours 240 yanmar made an attractive buy for me. I have not fished here yet and am process of customizing her but have no regrets.

Yes I've found a few in that price range. I'm not ready to pull the trigger until the end of this year so I'm gonna take my time and shop ad go on a few rides. I have not heard one negative about the cape cod 26 but I have to weigh my options and make the best buy for my needs. I debate back and forth between a center(cape cod) or a down east. Wish I could afford both.

cape dory

Went to look at the one in maine. I thought the boat was rough. big crack in wheelhouse, door was warped, my head smack the roof and a lot of blisters and cracks in fiberglass. If your a tall and big man no room in inside.
