9.26- "C-Brats" Meet

A 25' Cruiser by "C-Dory" tied up at the Wildlife Ramp, waiting to get
underway to the "C-Brats" gathering at Whittaker Pointe Marina.
(Click on picture or here for full size)
About 40 "C-Dory" boats are gathering this weekend at Whittaker Pointe Marina here in Oriental... Many were putting in at the Wildlife Ramp, but others came to Oriental by river and/or ICW.

These smallish boats have a lot of cruising amenities; two berths in the bow, galley with sink and alcohol or diesel stove, available enclosed head / shower or dinette convertible to two berths plus a third pilothouse seat, 6'5" of headroom.

Last week I featured a "Ranger Tug R21," a similar small pilothouse cruiser, at anchor in the harbor...

One or two Ranger Tugs may be coming in for the meet, as Ranger owners are welcome in the "C-Brats" club.
See the C-Dory manufacturer's site from Fluid Marine.

See the "C-Brats" online forum site.

Hello Ben! Thank you for visiting Arradon Daily Photo blog and sorry for this belated answer. The Gu├ępards are traditional boats in the Morbihan Gulf, they are made of wood and plywood with an aurique rigging (I amn't sure of these words in English...). They are flat-bottomed boats because in our Gulf, there are many places where the sea is not very deep. So, you can go almost every where. I think you can find some informations about them on Google.
I wish you a good weekend!
