I would not hesitate to recommend the R- 21 EC, but of course, it isn’t a wooden boat. I therefore come (finally) to the point: I respectfully recommend that Mary check out a Pulsifer Hampton. At 22 feet, it’s a little bigger than she might be looking for, but since she mentioned lobster skiff, I gather she doesn’t want a go-fast. The Pulsifer Hampton is a sweet boat that’s wood and built in Maine.
Good luck with your search! It really is half the fun. Bob Holt
