The Flicka is one of the most capable small cruisers ever built, with many having completed ocean passages. With their full keel, strong sheer, bluff bow and heavy displacement, it's no surprise to find that they in fact have a workboat heritage--the story really began over 100 years with the workboats sailing out of Newport, Rhode Island. Bound for the Block Island Sound to work the fishery, these vessels had a reputation for being fast, seaworthy and bringing their crews back to port safely--no easy task considering the weather these fishermen faced when they were at sea days on end.
