..and TWO TV sets??
Well, there I was giving them the BOtD that it was for promotional demos for the show....
Just back ourselves from a last minute dash to Seattle for the show there.. Good Jeanneau representation, other than the Ikea-ish finish below I liked the new SO39 in person.
Beneteau had a 34 on display - not a First series but a pretty nice boat, great profile without the rounded house and 'cat's eye' ports of her bigger sisters. One picky thing.. the hull is obviously molded in two halves - there was a prominently visible seam stem to stern down the centerline where the joined halves were not fully aligned or nicely faired. My other 'Bene bitch' is they are making squared-off doorways and passages below, adding to the condo look.
A couple of IPs there.... talk about overpriced (apologies, Paulo, for even mentioning them in this thread!
A Tartan 43 - very nice indeed but close to a half a mil....
Nicest new boat there for me was the Norstar 40 - a reworked resurrection of the Perry designed Nordic 40 - US built; they also make a 44.
This is a huge show, but as usual sailboats were very under-represented.
