Husbands vs Wives Part II

First off, thanks to the excellent comments and insights by all. I find this site invaluable with superb information and willing input to all struggling sailors like myself.

Well, The Hunter 380 was a bust. I'm glad we made the trip to LA. I asked the admiral to make the trip with me at the last minute and she consented. Glad she did. I probably would have moved forward with a survey. LA had a severe rain storm yesterday. When we arrived at the boat this AM, water was leaking everywhere. Upon further inspection, the overall condition just became worse and worse the more we looked. For a 5+ year old boat she looked 20. After a couple of hours the die was cast, it's a no-go. We took the advice of someone and hustled over to the Long Beach Boat Show. Very glad we did. Many boats to see which were not at the Seattle Boat Show last weekend.

It was pretty interesting to see the differences between a Seattle boat show and a Socal Boat show. Silicon is the obvious substance of choice in SoCal. I think more polyester (er... was that vinylester epoxy mix ??? ) was walking on the docks than was in the boats. Amazing to watch young ladys top heavy with a fresh coat of gelcoat, try to board a sailboat while sporting a 4 inch spike heal. Only in EELAAY.

So the search continues. (not for silicon), but true blue FRP. I see Hunter is offering significant discounts on NEW boats, like 15-20%. I heard they were hurting the most in the 36-41' range due to the mortgage crisis.

From a production boat perspective, the Jeanneau's offer some very attractive product. Does anyone have any info on the Jeanneau 43DS? Discontinued in 05', I think.

Glad you enjoyed So Cal, home of the world reknown "L.A. 10's". We actually have a special breeding program here that grows only the hottest chicks on the planet-(except for maybe Columbia and Argentina. But we're very close t de-coding their secrets. Our new hybrids should be out in time for Spring Break).........

Anyways PB, if you need me to visually check out a boat here in either Redondo Beach or Marina Del Rey, just p/m me with the details. We live 4 minutes from the first and 15 from the second harbor. It's not a problem whatsoever. Also know a few local brokers that I would trust with my money, if that is of any help to you.

Enjoy the hunt.......

Rick
