Pacific Seacraft Dana 24 Review - LATV
Season 5, Episode 1 • Educational, Short Films, Special Interest, Sports, G, 01-Jan-2006
Bob Bitchin, Latitudes & Attitudes TV, reviews the Pacific Seacraft Dana 24 pocket cruiser. Go small, go now. After a long production run, the DANA was put on hold for a few years.
