We did it!!!!!!!!!
After two long year's of searching marina's from the Great Lakes to the Chesapeake Bay we have finally found our boat! A 1981 Shannon 38 Ketch.The knowledge we have gleaned from the posts on this forum, have been an invaluable source of information to us during our search. Thanks everyone on the forum.

Congrats! If you ever get to RI, you can go to the Shannon factory and see how they manufacture the boats and see the original drawings for your ship. I did that with our 28 and it was a great time. They are also great with any questions you may have about your ship.

We went to the Shannon factory and talked to Bill Ramos he gave us a tour and some Shannon hats and told us if we ever have any questions don't hesitate to give them a call.
