    I just signed up with the forum. Found it while searching boats for sale. I don’t reside down east, but I really like the style of boat. And this looks like a great place to get info.
    My current boat is a Harry Bryan Rambler 23 that I built. It’s a bit slow for us down in Beaufort SC with a 6.6 knot cruise speed and almost 3 knot tidal currents, so we are looking for something a bit faster for our trips around the area. A friend in Annapolis has a 36’ lobster boat he converted/restored and I got a ride on it recently. A 17 knot cruise felt like a good speed, especially with the chop we get here on Port Royal Sound in SC. Not wanting something that big, but rather @ 22’ for ease of hauling myself.

    Here’s the current boat;

    Good luck with your search, something might pop up here that will suit your needs. If you get a project boat you need to post lots of pictures here.

    Thanks, I had great time building her, but I chose the design before we moved to the coast. If she made 17 knots I’d keep her!
