I told my wife that it needs a set of leopard skin sails.

Try Chris at the local Ullman shop in Seattle, He might be able to pull that off! If not, look into their CAL sails, nice panel sewn laminates, about the same price as dacron, but better in light winds etc.

Re: Jeanneau 42 vs. Catalina 42

We've hit a financing roadblock! Our bank only finances boats up to 15 years old. Our other lender wants 30 - 35% down because we're liveaboards. Zoiks!

Fortunately, the seller is being patient with us. Out last resort was to apply for a loan through Essex Credit Corp. I guess they finance a lot of boat and RV purchases. We should hear back in a couple of days.

Those leopard skin sails might have to wait.

Finding someone to finance a 23 year old boat may be a problem, especially with a low down payment. That is the big reason they drop a ton in value after 15 years. If you find someone please advise who did. You might want to speak to local boat brokers to see if they will tell you who they have had success with. I am trying to get a mortgage myself and even that is tough nowadays and there is government backing on the loans and the house can't be moved! I would have expected 30% down on an used boat, liveaboard or not.

While not positive on the for sure, the link I gave to the boat in Olympia is the only local boat of this type in puget sound for sale to my knowledge. Being as a broker was mentioned, I'll swag that.

Also, you can not send or recieve/open pms with out 3-5 posts. So if glossa "DOES" pm you, do a 2, 3 , posts in this thread to get your post count up to receive pms etc, or do a hide your email as such " yadda at something dot com"

Yes - the link was to the one we looked at. To my knowledge it still has a for sale sign on it.

Re: Jeanneau 42 vs. Catalina 42

I don't think so. If you have a boat question, ask it, might even start your own thread. But I don't talk to strangers from the Internet.
