Plans to build the 20' Caladesi Carolina Dory
To fill in the sizes between the standard 18 footer and the larger 24 foot Key Largo, introducing the Caladesi. It's named for a great fishing island on the Gulf Coast of Florida, where one of my customers fishes regularly. The Caladesi has all of the ease of construction, ruggedness, and sea kindliness of my other Carolina dories now in an ideal sized 20 footer. Light, fast, low power, (so low fuel consumption,) and able to handle some really tough conditions yet fish in shallow water, make this one of the most practical boats you could own.
Here's a video of a Caladesi running on a river with a 40 horse outboard. You can see how fast and smooth the ride is. Remember, this is a 20 foot long boat!
