I hate to admit that I let my C-15 go to pieces... it's just been sitting in the sun too long to be salvageable. I think i'd like something like a Thistle - nice and open - able to fit several people - and easy to repair if it gets damaged - because there is so much easy access from the inside. Are Thistles generally available? Is there another boat out there that's similar that I could pick up for a couple grand? Thanks!
