Boat Reviews By Owners

1995 -- 18' 8" BAYLINER

Model: Capri 1952

Cockpit: Nice size cockpit; great for passengers to sight-see. The helm back to back seat is WAY too small for anybody to comfortably drive, even in calm water. Great day boat, or overnighter.

Cabin: The cabin has decent storage, but it's really too small for two people to sleep in. I'm 6'2, and slept in it by myself without too much discomfort. To smaller people might fit ok. Limited headroom, so the porta-potty is near impossible to use.

Construction: Average construction quality. No complaints for a boat at this pricepoint. I would have liked a little more storage in the cockpit - maybe under the seats, and a larger in floor locker. Also, an anchor locker, or roller would have been REAL nice - it sucks hauling the anchor from the cockpit onto the bow, and it's even worse bringing a wet and dirty anchor back into the cockpit.

Handling: Definately an inland boat. It handles well in the creeks and rivers, but my wife just about crapped herself when we would go out into the Chesapeake. It's fun to tube from, and without power steering it's a nice little workout on your arms.

Engine Room: Mercruiser 3.0 - good power and acceleration. I topped it out at 46 mph (on GPS). But she blew a hole in the number one piston this year, and it's extremely expensive to fix - almost not worth it for this boat.

General Comments: I like the boat - it's great for tubing, fishing and island hopping. It's easy to beach, easy to launch and retrieve (although I mostly kept it in the water), it runs in shallow water pretty easy. It was a good first boat, and would be a great lake boat.
