Re: Swan 41 vs CT 38
FWIW the 41 was one of the principal boats that established the Nautor Swan label as being "The Best".
The CT38 was produced around the time that Ta Chiao was improving their rep from being a builder of "Leaky Teakies".
Assuming the teak decks are in comparable condition, I'd take the Swan, no contest. The state of the decks could be a deal breaker though - if they are shot it will be a major job to fix, even just to strip the teak off and paint. To replace the teak will cost as much as the boat these days.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
