Can I get insight on the eastern 22 lobstermen. I was looking at an older model from the mid 80s. Seems to be in good shape, can any one tell me about the ride? Or construction. There not a lot of talk about these from years past.

the one I’m looking at does have a motor so I can’t test drive it.

I have a 2002 outboard version. It is a great boat, shallow draft fuel efficient and relatively seaworthy. Only general concern is that is tricky with a following sea. What do you intend to use it for?

Just running up and down the coast striper fishing, maybe push out a couple miles to bounce around the islands. I think the hull design stayed the same over the years, just the construction went over to composite sometime in the 2000s
