Re: What is your opinion of Bavaria's?

That is an incredible boat, no doubt about it. Comparing it to my 1970 43' is laughable - you'd need an old Columbia 57 to even come close to that level of spaciousness. The bosun's locker is wonderful - almost as big as ONE of my cockpit lockers.

I have a couple of questions - how much $$$?

Is it just me or does the perfection of finish on the teak on new boats make it look artificial? My friends Hunter has that same kind of flawless finish and to me it looks like Arborite. I'd be tempted to go over it with a brush, just to introduce a little soul into it.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
