Is that the one they were showing at the Annapolis boat show this past year? If so, my wife almost fell over backwards with the fake teak decks being so slippery... Interesting boat.

Labatt,

Maybe. The 54 does have fake teak decks, but they look more like real teak and are supposed to give very good footing. See the spread in Blue Water Boats, p70ff for April 2007.

But, she doesn't have the kind of fake teak decks I've been longing for: those which look like real teak, are slip-resistant, scuff resistant, cool underfoot, and which are really very efficient solar cells, putting a hell of a lot of amps into your batteries :-)

Where did you guys get to? Up the Hudson somewhere?

Bill

We made it to Albany on Thursday and had the mast taken down. Now that was a lot of fun - NOT! I have video I'll post in the next few days. Next weekend we take her up to Lake Champlain through the Champlain Canal.

And I like your concept of good teak decks. The jury is still our on the teak decks of ours. With regards to the ones on the Amel's, a number of the mags have given them good reviews, but I'll go by my experience on them - yuck! And I've had others tell me similarly. They were wet, and they were slippery.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
