The 22' angler was dandy in many ways, but we really wanted a galley and some heat. So, in 2003 we ordered a custom boat that I still think was the prettiest C-Dory color palette I've ever seen, a warm tan hull and rich brown canvas made the generally sterile C-Dory decor much cozier.
As with all our boats, Fred did a lot of clever comfort and storage updates on Anita Marie.
But, he couldn't solve my biggest challenge: I really, really wanted a real bathroom. The 22 (and the 25 for that matter) could get a little cozy. Note the laundry photos below, taken during a prolonged Gulf Islands trip. So, in 2005 we sold the original Anita Marie and bought that year's Boat Show 25' model. It's hull is a taupe color called Nomad. Pretty, but not as pretty as the first Anita Marie.
