I have a 9.9 which weighs about the same as a 15. A bathroom scale put it at 80 lbs. when I figured out the person capacity for my boat. That Dory is way overpriced in my opinion. Sandy Point State Park used to have those boats by the dozzen for rent back in the 70's. They were made by a company called Beal Boat Company. Imperial Marine on the west shore along RT. 40 has Lowe deep vee's and semi vee's for about $1,700 and $1,500. The motor is going to cost you close to double that. I would sooner swim then go into the bay with a flat bottom boat. Most people who have sailed the Chesapeake should already know how hard it would be to navigate in the bay with a jon boat. They are back-water and lake boats at best.
