Thoughts on new boats

Denr-
Settle down there pal... the loser that bought the 361 was tarmand (a.k.a. me) and was not the guy who started the thread, JIO. The guy who started the thread, JIO, asked me, tarmand, what boat I had purchased as follow up to my original post on this thread. It seems to me that you must simply scan the board only for mentions of any mass produced boat so you can spew forth your venomous pontifications. May I suggest that you actually read the thread, and if necessary draw a diagram of who said what, and reserve your venom for discussions of lawn mowers and Fat Assed sterns. In fact, if you read the very first post by JIO, he specifically asked not to hear from you (although he was too gentlemanly to refer to you by name), as he was trying to get opinions from others and wasn''t looking for diatribes. Good day and good sailing.

We have a SO Jeanneau 40 with VIP in St. Thomas. VIP also has the SO Jeanneau 37. Both boats fit your description of your needs, only the 37 is closer to your dollar total. On our version and I am sure you can order it, we have three cabins and two heads both with showers. The cabin is spacious and you could hold a dance in the cockpit even with the very large cockpit table. The two wheel layout really opens thinks up. Our Jeanneau has held up beautifully with two years of charter experience and I am happy with the way it sails. I have a Morgan 384 here in the great lakes and had a S2 7.9 for 15 years before that (just to give you my reference points).

Good Luck,

tarmand-You are correct, I put my fingers in gear before engaging my brain to connect the dots. Hey I''m in good company with the CIA and FBI anyway. I really should read the posts more closely. Exxcccuusseee me! In my defense, this situation of asking for an opinion "after the purchase" has happened a number of times in the past on this BB.

By the way, if you follow your own advise of reading the posts you''ll notice that I spewed not one drop of venom.

So now that we know what type of vessel you purchased, what type of mower do you own? I know the answer to the stern question.

Denr-
I had a Craftsman 22" with a 3.5HP Briggs and Stratton engine. But it didn''t have a deep enough oil sump to deal with the slopes in my yard, so it threw a rod (a rusty Iron one if I recall!) after three months. So true to form for a fat-sterned floating condo dweller, I hired someone to do it. I think he uses a Kubota. Peace.

"you''ll notice that I spewed not one drop of venom."

HUH!?

Well if your initial comments weren''t trashing somebody (which was incorrectly aimed at the person looking to buy a boat - JIO) than I don''t know what is. You tend to makes comments that nobody but yourself wants to hear. I agree with tarmand (and others), if you had a constructive comment to put on here than do it, and try and keep your dilusional rantings to yourself.

You must be a Hunter owner because they usually can''t count past three either!

Hey, I ate some crow, do I have to eat a seagull as well?

Tarmand,
With all due respect Beneteau 361 SA/D ratio is less than 19...
Even the new First 36.7 which is a racing version has a ratio of 21.1...
however I''m sure it will serve your purpose very well.
Fair Winds......

doubleplay, you''re probably right about the 361 SA/D... but, just so you don''t think I made it up here''s the source:

dp- on the J37 "shower stall": even in the two cabin version it''s a combined commode/shower. It is separate from the head, but for some crazy reason the wife wasn''t comfortable combining those two activities into one convenient area. I have a tough time saying I blame her. As always, to each his own. Once again, you can verify my source with the following link:

Cheers!
