    yeah, I’ve done some reading and it looks like the boats built up to 2007 have done structural issues. They’re still “value” boats, so the glass is laid differently than higher end boats, but I don’t be offshore or anything so I’m not worried about hitting chop.

    Wondering if you could elaborate a bit more on the towing experience.

    I'm planning on upgrading to a Hewes Searunner with a F200 on an aluminum trailer in two or three years. I'm also thinking it'll be around 5k ready to go but light on fuel. I currently have a much lighter boat but would be towing from Issaquah to Everett or Twanoh.

    The C-Dorys are great. Used to fish with a guy with twin Honda 40's on them. Loved the pilothouse when the weather wasn't perfect - which is most of the year in the northwest.

    It is a fantastic boat! I have added over 125 hours to the motor since buying it last August and hope to get up to the San Juans from Tacoma this year.

    As for towing it, the trailer has brakes, not electronically controlled, but nonetheless i don't have any issues braking. I often carry a dirt bike on a hitch carrier, so I already had the firestone air bags on the rear leafs. When I hook up the boat I use a bulldog adjustable hitch with a minor rise, add air to bring the rear wheel gap to factory measurements on a TRDOR, and she sits nice and level and doesn't sway much. The farthest I have gone is Shelton to Tacoma, when I bought it, and had no issues. The truck isn't eager to pull it off course, but gets the job done. I have a manual and just kept it in 5th gear on I5 doing 65 no problem.

    I would also like to take it out to chelan and I'm sure the Tacoma won't enjoy the pass, but it will do it. A full size truck would do a much better job, but I love my Tacoma and it gets the job done on the rare occasion I need to tow it.

    I just came across this excellent thread. So many nice boats! I have a 14' tin boat already but I have been sort of casually contemplating getting something larger, so I was searching the forum to see who was towing what with their Tacomas and trying to decide what I could get away with and what would actually be reasonable without also getting a larger truck. Honestly, I'll probably just stick with what I have. It's a cheap boat to own and run, does most of what I want, and is just easy to tow and own in general. More boat, more problems! Still there will always be that part of me that wants a little more room and the ability to handle larger water on days that aren't perfectly calm.

    I call her "Possumus", because it means "We Can" in Latin and it seems such a grand name for a dinky old boat, it sounds like possum too, and so it makes me laugh :rofl:

    I have caught bushels of blue crabs with her here in southern Maryland over the last few years and plenty of fish. She's a Lowe 14' Jumbo V2 aluminum skiff circa 1987, powered by a 15HP Evinrude 2 stroke from 1983 that starts on the second or third pull every time (every time I don't forget to put on the choke, connect the fuel line or prime it... etc., etc.) :) The prior owner had completely refreshed the motor and replaced the transom on the boat just before I bought it. I got the boat, motor, and trailer as a package deal for a price I am very proud of. She's not that pretty and could use some paint work if I ever get round to it but she's water tight and stable with a wide beam, high sides, and a tall transom for a small aluminum skiff.

    P.S. That second seat is usually empty :) If anybody down near the Southern Maryland area wants to go fishing and/or crabbing with me I'm always happy to have a fishing buddy. Send me a PM and I'll start letting you know the days when I head out. I usually prefer to go out on weekdays when I can because it's not as crowded. Usually early AM, like hitting the ramp at dawn or shortly after, and staying out until around 12-1 because I have a night gig that I do. I watch the weather, only go out when it's nice (no rain and low winds), and often don't know I'm going until the day before I go though.

    Been slowly pecking away at some projects on my boat. Think I finally understand how this carb works. Replaced the carpet in the spring and then made a new cup holder setup. Lights are rgbw so they will cycle through the spectrum.

    They were great boats. I had a 1978 CVX 18. It was a great boat, wish I'd never sold it

    MasterCraft best ski boat ever made, the ultimate ski boat. Instant up for skiers, best and most perfect wake, tracks better than any other boat running a course even when windy. MasterCraft has pulled me through slalom courses hundreds of times, never a hiccup with the boat. Did my best competition slalom run back in the day behind a MasterCraft on a Connolly ski, 3.5 @ 38 off. Awesome boat.
