Sorry that I missed this thread back in january - I was on business travel for 2 weeks.

Congratulations! She looks great and you've jumped the first hurdle - the boat is in the water and made a 4 hour journey successfully. If you have any questions - PM me. We're on our second Sabre (and crewed on a 3rd) and have more than a passing knowledge of this vintage. They are remarkably similar across the product line - just a question of scale.

I'm envious that it only took you a year to find your boat... it took me two.
For our first Sabre (a 28), we looked at 2 Sabres in a single day and bought the second boat. For our current boat, we looked at 2 34s and a 38 in a single day. The internet search for our current boat lasted about a month. From what I can read about other's searches, we were very lucky.

Congrats and good luck.
Sabre 38 "Victoria"
