I have been looking for a 42-46' live aboard. there are 2 I liked a Morgan 462 and a Stamas 44. Wondering if anyone knows these boats in particular the Stamas. Both are Ketch Rigs.
Any help would be great. Thanks, Paul

If all you want to do is live aboard, there's more room in a motor boat and even more in a house boat. But I guess you want to sail from somewhere to somewhere else. Those places, and the bits in between, will affect your choice.

Cool....I knew it...Silva is a name only found in Portuguese language (or its ex-colonies or Portuguese speaking countries, like Brasil, Angola, Moçambique, Timor, Guiné, São Tomé..etc...).

By the way, Silva, (means Bush in English), is a nature name, and like all nature names, it dates back to the enquisition, when the Jewish people living in Portugal had to be converted to catolicism, to avoid murder.

Generaly speaking, all nature related names were adopted by old Jewish families once converted to catoloc religion. The church back then said, well you are now a "new christian", and so that we know you are a converted jew, you need a nature name...imagine doing that ******** today...

anyway, other names...Pereira (pear tree), Branco (white), Oliveira (olive tree), Colombo (pigeon), Ferreira (smith), Gaivota (sea gull), Marinho (maritime) etc. etc.


Welcome to Sailnet...fellow countryman (or almost)

by the way, so you know...if they say I do photoshop, don't believe, and tottally ignore:

Sailingdog, Camaraderie, Cruisingdad, Sailortjk1, Sailaway21 (aka the commie), tenuki, bestfriend, sailingfool, tommyt, gysgt, valiente, T34C, Tartan34c, ianhlnd, and the rest of the losers....

You are totally correct about the conversos (I only know the Spanish term, sorry!)...the arrogance of the Church was unbelievable.

I think Silva means "woods", Alex, as in "a collection of trees" or "forest". The Latin version gives us the female name "Sylvia" and the English word "sylvan", meaning "wooded".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Da_Silva

It's like the difference between "floresta", "madeiras" and "arbusto" in Portuguese: forest, woods, bush.

In Canadian and Australian English, however, an uncleared forest, or a forest that is regrowing after being cut down is commonly called "the bush", as in "Tim is out in the bush trying to bag a deer". (You would hear that a lot in Saskatchewan...they have a great deal of "bush" there.

My kid plays with another boy called "Silva" and it's a ridiculously common name, like "Smith" in English. I think those ex-Jews had many children in order to be super Catholics.

I wouldn't want you to end up calling the American President "Silva" by mistake....

Valiente, in YnGlitch I think we still say "silvan glade" which is a bit odd, since something silvan is "wooded" and a glade is generally an opening in the woods. (shrug).

"the arrogance of the Church was unbelievable." Oh, I don't know. The Church was 1400 years old and still a bit, ah, incredibly intolerant of variation. Islam is now, what, 1300 years old and behaving the exact same way?

Children of the Book.
