Mine. Called an AMF Puffer, 12.5' long, as you can see I'm in the market for a trailer. They made 5000 of these so there should be lots around. Has oars, no motor. Also, that's not me.

I would love to try out one of these, either the nesting or non-nesting variety

I love the look of these. They're really pretty little boats. I love the name, too. Fatty Knees... I wouldn't ever get tired of telling people that. Like you said, they do seem to be quite tender. I saw a few videos of people sailing them, and they seemed to flop over quite easily. As someone of not inconsiderable size, who isn't terribly quick on his feet, it made me a bit nervous.

I took a look at an ancient O'day 18 footer today. It's a bit bigger than I wanted, a bit older, and considerably uglier, but the price was right. 850 bucks with a trailer.

It was full of water. Like... full full. Probably two feet of water in the Cuddy.

At least I know she doesn't leak below the waterline!
