We love our Shannon 43. We fell for the classic lines...and everything seems to be done the best way it could be done, and most of the boats have spent alot of time on the seas. We will be going to Rhode Island next week to see the factory for the first time, and I am looking forward to meeting founder and designer Walter Shultz and the others. Shannon only makes a few boats a year, so its definately not a production boat. Our 1988 is Hull #19 and I think the the latest is #52.
Morgan Freeman quote on 60 minutes about sailing...."If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn't worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality. And to me, sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it's life or death. There's no quarter."
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.
