JH - you were right about the O''Day and I do think the Endeavour 40 is far too sluggish.

The Cheoy Lee was interesting, nicely built and nicely laid out. The gelcoat looked like it was worn out and cracking though ... the owner had simply painted over much of it. The owner also just dabbed some 5200 on the tops of some screws on the toerail, probably in an effort to stop a leak. Not good. And the teak decks... nice ...but .... you just know you will have to write a big check some day.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Will have to see the Jeanneau 40 and C&C 38L and see if they grab me. Mostly likely not though.

Have you seen an Albin Nimbus 42? Nice lines.

BTW, if you are wandering around Annap tonight, there is a terrific Union 36 tied up in Ego Alley. It has just come out of a yard where she was ''gripped and had the deck done (using the original teak). Gorgeous. Had a nice chat with the owner.

Regards,
