I'm new to the forum, thought I would ask for advice...
I'm looking for a small boat in the 26' range to buy. We live on the Fraser River just outside of Vancouver and would like a boat that is small enough to be manageable but big enough to do some weekend cruising in the Gulf Islands.
I have been looking at the 26' Tollycrafts and they seem to meet my needs: big enough for my wife, my 2 year old and myself, they have a head
with some form of a shower
, nice design, simple layout, apparently easy to handle.
I am looking at a couple of boats both of which have been re-engined and redone in the interior
(I'm not that handy so I don't want to buy a real project boat) and they are in the 25-35K range which fits my budget
General thoughts on the Tollycraft 26's?
Any thoughts on similar boats I should consider? (I looked at a couple of Bayliners but I like the flybridge on the Tolly better)
Any specific problems with Tollycraft's that would change my mind?
Thanks for any help!
