Re: Ray Richards Cheoy Lee 41 Offshore??

Lorilei,

I resemble that remark :-)

I actually chartered an Offshore 41 in Nanny Cay, Tortola in the 80's. Don't remember which year, but we had her for 3 weeks. Boat was named, "Serentil", I believe, and had an unlikely homeport on the stern, like "Boulder CO", or some such.

Nice boat, good performance.

There's been a liveaboard OS41 at my marina in Washington DC for the past 20 years or so. In fact, she just left a few weeks ago to go into a yard down the river for maintenance and ???

Only other OS42 I've run across over the years is the one I mentioned earlier. She was at Nanny Cay for quite awhile, and was bought by Tom ?? and his wife. He did a lot of work on her and, subsequently, sailed her to the South Pacific and on back to California.

in reference to a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41'. I am hoping he might remember a bit more about that boat or another CL O41 that was in Roadtown in the '90's. I am looking for information about a particular boat and her whereabouts over the last 20 years. It is purely for fun. Might someday be a writing project. If anyone here thinks they might know anything I would be happy to hear from you. Thanks.
