I was originally turned off by the fact that the Vacationer was “twice the price” to build of the Weekender, then I found that at the beginning of the decade the price to build was $1600 and I thought to myself, then that makes the Vacationer $3200 in 2002 dollars. Even if it’s four or five grand now to build, that’s not shabby for a 24 foot LOA/21 foot LOD boat. I’ve got a 21 footer that I paid $25K for in 2001 (and am still floating the boat note on).

BTW, DaveR, now I know where the Herreshoff table came from. I’m contantly amazed at how deep the bench is here on LJ’s…

Matt, after looking at how small the guy looks in the cockpit of the Weekender, I have to agree. I know they have warm fuzzies about the Weekender, but the Vacationer is just a bit more bang for your buck.
