Mom and Dad Bought their boat...

They finally did it. It is final as of today - they are the outright owners of a Tayana 42. HEY!!!

I think many of the people here know we have been shopping for quite a while. I have even talked to many of you on the phone. We considered quite a few boats, but in the end, we found the T-42 as the best boat for a number of reasons:

1) Seperate shower.
2) Comfortble head.
3) Lots of storage.
4) Very comfortable, roomy interior.
5) Easy Lazarette access.
6) Comfortable cockpit (considering what it is).

This boat is a 1987 (splashed 1988), 1 owner, fresh water (with the exception of 1 year... where it is now) Tayana Vancouver 42 aft cockpit. It does have teak decks, but they are in very good shape. There is NO sign of ANY water damage on the entire boat. Nothing leaks. The boat is very solid. The survey had some issues we had to resolve, but we worked through them. We also pulled an engine survey which came back very good.

As far as equioment... name it: Water maker (new Spectra, this year), radar, CP, autopilot (though all the electronics are old and will be replaced), generator, ac/heat, SSB (well, almost... much of it has been done with the exception of the Dynaplates for CP). The cushions are relatively new and all the rigging and hardware looks VERY good... suprisingly good in fact.

Since the boat was a greatlakes boat for almost all of its life, it looks to have been used only about half the year. There is very little rust and oxidations. It has two full sets of sails, one of them almost brand new.

For those of you with a wooden mount for your traveller, take a look at what the PO did here: He fabricated a SS traveler mount so rot would no longer be a problem. We found MANY of the boats we looked at with teak mounts were having rot problems. Maybe it is a solution for you?

All in all, it was not the perfect boats. It has drawbacks. One of the biggest ones is that we are not the same boat type (for cruising together... I will leave him behind). But it had so many other positives that we decided we would just deal with it.

Here are a bunch of pics. I did not take them to "show off" the boat... but to remember aspects of it so we could seperate it from other boats we saw. SO you are not seeing it at its best, but it will give you a pretty good feel for it anyways.

Thanks everyone for the help and thoughts. We are another step closer to cruising...

Beauty, CD Congrats to all

The pics show an interior reminiscent of a friend's Passport 40 in terms of finish... very nice indeed.

This must be an exciting time for you all.

Wow! Very nice. Wish your folks "congratulations". They chose well.

Now if only they could choose their relatives...

Man, you put in some leg work. Looks like your efforts paid off! It's a lovely boat. & thanks for the pics -- I'll need something similar on my SJ21 to bridge the tiller. That SS traveler arch might be the ticket.

Thanks all. Yep, we did a BUNCH of shopping. A lot of it was very frustrating. I cannot tell you how many hurricane boats are out there... and not all the brokers are very forthright with the information.

John, the inside is VERY similar to a P40. If not for the seperate shower, we might have gone that route. The T42 seemed to have a bit more room also. However, I bet the P40 is the better performer.

Anyways... we are shipping her in the next couple of weeks to Lake Texoma where they will get the systems down and finalize the upgrades. They will be 2 slips down from us (where baby sitting is close... but not too close!!!!).

We are REALLY looking forward to it.

CD,
that's a really nice V42. Needless to say I like it. I love the traveler! I wish I had one like that. I have a laminated traveler mount as well as boom gallows. No rot at all but I did manage to drop the boom on the gallows and break it. It's now glued and thru bolted. Best of luck to them and I'm sure they'll be happy with it although waiting for you to catch up all the time will be frustrating.

CD, congrats to your P&M. Seems like a great find based on what you've wrote. You didn't mention a bbq? I'm sure you can set them up with something.

Waiting for me to catch up... that was a funny one!!!!!

Yep, I thought I would get a nice response from you. They are great boats and seem to be super live aboard/cruising boats. With the exceptions we have spoken about before in teh T42 thread... it is great.

I wanted to get pops a BBQ for a persent (and Christmas both... those things are not cheap), but he said no. He wants to shop it himself. Believe me, dad likes grilling even MORE than me. We will be like a couple of floating restaurants!

It's okay, I guess. Don't really like the color scheme of the pot-holder. And what's it doing over the coffee maker? Shouldn't it be over by the stove?
