Seems King always had great interiors installed on anything he did..the woodwork on the I-37 seems typical Bruce King top-end cabintery...enjoy her...his boats have a great rep for being good sailors on top of the other attributes as it should be...
That precedes the existence of Pacific Seacraft. King designed for Islander in the 60's and then became the designer for Ericson. P.S. came after that.

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.
