Carl Alberg Cape Dory Yachts 1981-1988 245 sq. ft. portable portable

Approx. trailering wgt.: 4,900 lbs.

The smaller Cape Dory Typhoon 18 (page 23) was introduced in about 1971, when the company was offering only two boats, but it wasn't until 1981 that the 22-foot Typhoon "Senior" came along. The 22 sold well until the late 1980s, when many boatbuilders recognized that better profitability would be gained by the sale of larger boats. Best features: She's got that Alberg look, with springy sheer and gracefully drawn ends. And though this boat is close in most dimensions to her comps, she has the feel of a bigger boat, with more space and greater headroom below than her comps. Worst features: Why the quaint little portholes instead of oval or rectangular portlights? Others must have asked the same question; rectangular ports were substituted on a later version. The outboard well amidships, covered with a full hatch, may look good, but we recall that ventilation in the engine compartment was poor, and to keep the engine from starving from lack of fresh air, the crew would have to prop open the hatch.

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
