Thanks, CG. MSC is getting a new 36i in this week, and I'll have a look at it. She's going right into the boat show, so I doubt I'll get a chance to sail her for a bit.

Boat Show

There is a boat show in the Seattle area on Lake Union I would suggest attending if you're in the area. It's next weekend, Sep 16th-20th. It's the boats afloat show, and they will have both boats there I'm sure.

I would go to the Annapolis Sail Boat Show in October. It is the best show in the USA.

it really depends on what are you going to do with the boat - short day sails nothing to stress the boat not big seas - then either works
but if you want a solid boat that will stand up go for the jeanneau -
we are full time cruisers on a jeanneau ds40 - on our way back from maine to fla - the bigger the seas the better the boat preformed - she is solid in every way - we bought her new in 2003 and have had few problems (not counting a couple of lightening strikes) with her or how she is put together - she likes bigger wind and we really start reefing at 18-20k not that she can't handle the winds but see little reason to gain a few tenths of a knot and be uncomfortable -
as full time cruisers we appreciate the solid feeling of a solid boat and the great well thought out layout
while i love melrna (melissa) (we know each other as we helped her get my slip in miami when i left) i think the hunters are over rated and not even close to the quality of a jeanneau - sorry mel -
we are headed to the bahamas this year and mexico and south or off shore to the virgin islands next year and know that we don't have to worry that we don't have a boat that can take it - in fact she seems to be more at home with ocean conditions than say the cheaspeake bay
just my opinion
