Shannon 38''s were a very high end/well built boat at the time they were introduced, altho'' you will notice that the design is more traditional and with more modest proportions (and accommodations) than you will find in today''s marketplace (at, it must be added, today''s prices).
There recently have been several articles in CW written by the owner of LUCY, a Shannon 38 we met in G''town, Great Exuma before heading out into the Caribbean. He would be a good source of follow-up info as they sailed to the Med on their boat before selling it...so he has prospective, experience and no longer any vested interest. He can be found via the web or via CW after you find the articles; the last one was in a Spring issue and was titled something like Offshore Checklist or Last 12 Days Checklist.
You''ll find a lot of boatyard info in the articles in Latitude 38, a free mag available at most WM stores around the country and, of course, everywhere in CA.
