Approx. trailering wgt.: 2,900 lbs.

This early design, only 22' 1" on deck but 22' 10" if the extended reverse transom is counted, is by George Cuthbertson, later a partner in the famed C&C design firm. She is remarkable for her sleek looks, rare as early as the year 1967. The Grampian Classic 22 (page 173) is virtually the same design, except for elimination of the Paceship's reverse transom. Our comments recorded there also apply to the Paceship shown here. Best features: The Paceship Bluejacket (not to be confused with the totally different

Bluejacket 23 Motorsailer reported on page 222) has positive flotation for safety. A big lazarette hatch has a well inside for an outboard. To our eye she appears to be sleek and graceful. Worst features: While all the comps listed here offer weekending accommodations, the Paceship's are most spartan. The cockpit is not self-bailing, requiring the use of canvas covers to keep rain from swamping the boat when left at a mooring or slip for any length of time. Sitting headroom, at a bare 3' 1", is lowest of all her comps.

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.
