Cape_Horn_24 (2/17/2010)I wish you had posted this on her a week or so ago, Just sold our 200321' cape horn with a 250 yamaha, and upgraded to a 24' Cape horn with twin 200 yamahas on it. That too was my first boat and loved it. The only time i ever got wet on that boat was when it rained and we were running back in, but then again it was My first year fishing off shore in my own boat, so we played the safe game and only went out when it 3' or less. I havent had a chance to fish or ride on any of the smaller modles. Good luck with whatever you decide on buying though.
I have had the PLEASURE of fishing the beer can and the petronis in a cape horn 24. Man..now that is a boat!! How comfortable where you in your 21? I am not trying to hit the 70 mile mark, but would like to run out 50 miles on a good day with other boats...did you feel okay doing that in a 21?

We do it all the time in a Sea Hunt Triton 220 and have never felt unsafe..

C-monsters (2/17/2010)Forgot to add one con for the cape horns. They are great for fishing, and seem indestructable,but a little spartan if you are trying to go out with awife and/or kids. You will find a few more ammenities with a Grady orEdgewater.
No wife or kids yet. The reason exactly i am trying to hurry up and become a boat owner.

I had a 19ft with a 150 Yamaha. It was the second best boat i ever owned. I now have 24ft with twin 200 Yamahas it is the best boat i've ever owned. The 19 i had 70 miles offshore many times and never felt uncomfortable. They changed their design on the 19 in 2004. If you purchase a cape of any size, make sure it has trim tabs and i guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Due to our lack of knowledge of knowing how to read the weather and being our first year fishing offshore on our own, we never made it past the 30 mile mark. There were a few times when the weather picked up and we had to run in in 4-6' and never felt a bit of uncomfort or nervousness with the boat or the ride. Had we kept it we would deffinitly be making a few runs out farther this year, we just did not have the experince to make it that far last year:crying

Moving expense, What kind of fule milage are you getting in your 24? Our 24 came in a few days ago it also has twin 200 yamahas on it. Are yours 4 strokes or 2 strokes?
