Cape Dory had a reputation for building seaworthy boats for over 40 years. I've heard it said more than once that they built such a quality product, they could not compete with much cheaper plastic boats, and were forced into bankruptcy around 1990. They were fairly slow, brick $hithouses.
I own the Power Cruiser recreational version of that boat. This is the first one I have seen rigged as a pure commercial fisherman, with an open, short cabin. But no reason not to like it in that service. I like mine a lot.
