Congratulations on a beautiful boat. Always liked the Sabers. And , in my opinion, a fixed salon table is preferable to a foldup bulkhead mount. As long as the table is strongly built and fixed in place it is more useful I think than a foldup which usually tend to be rather flimsy and useless underway.

Really nice boat, and nicely acquired!

What is that on the headliner in the pic of the head/nav station? Plastic sheeting of some kind, maybe?

I believe that's a screen for the overhead hatch that's velcroed in place.

Congrats!
For the $3500 it ran for storage this winter, it better be very nice. I was out there last weekend and I had to take my sweater off... it was too warm.



The thing hanging from the hatch is a screen.

Thanks guys! She may end up being our home for a year or two if all works out. I'm looking forward to laying on the beach in the Bahamas two winters from now!

Congrats

Johnson (or should I call you Fun?)

Congratulations to you and the Admiral, she's obviously a lady with discriminating taste. I'm envious that it only took you a year to find your boat... it took me two.

You're going to love being a Sabre owner, well designed and built, quality and attention to detail throughout. And, Sabre owners are the nicest people on earth. Really, and former Sabre owners are second nicest. I gues those who lust to own Sabres would rank third.

Oh heck, if ya love to sail you're a great person in my book.

Enjoy the boat every chance you get and appreciate all that FRESH water in Lake Michigan.

Fair Winds...MGM

You guys are the best!

Thanks for the kind words... I'm waiting for Sailingdog and Mainsail (and who ever else) comments on what needs to be done. Come on, I know the photos show some issues that need correcting!

Thanks again for taking the time to share in our joy. The admiral is very happy with the boat.

Sounds like you might have the wing keel version. That keel can dig in like an anchor even in a soft grounding. A good towing policy may be a good thing to have just in case.

Now that Spring is here, how's she sail?

Love the interior layout, if she sails as good as she looks, fantastic!

Thanks for asking...

The boat went in the water last week, but the closest I got to sailing was a 4 hour motor up the Lake Michigan coast to it's new home in Muskegon. The wind was too light to even think about hoisting the sails. I'll be sure to let you know how she sails when I get some wind!
