about all you can say is NICE, not the boat for me, I would drive myself crazy trying to keep that finish looking as good as it does. But, really, NICE, and it sounds like you have the way you like it, so that means it is used and loved.

I just get to wondering how one cleans around all the stuff that's glued and bolted down.

My boat has 5% of that amount of stuff and it already bugs me.

But the boat looks clean enough so I guess there's a way to do it all in less than a week.

Whats not to like?

I just look past all the trinkets and look at the bones of the boat.

My trinkets would be fishing reels, fly rods and camera gear...so what.

What you have done in the way of fit and finish is Outstanding...I don't have the patients for it but I know quality workmanship when I see it.

You Sir set a high bar indeed......Well done!..

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Before reading this, I thought that it would take hours to prepare to get underway.

Although not to everyone's tastes, shows lots of caring and time is involved to maintain in that immaculate condition.

I'm amazed at the finish of that vessel. After 2 boat shows in Fl this year I have yet to see anything near that quality in a sailboat, 7 million dollar motoryacht yes. Very well done.

Most of the decoration and wood work would be ruined if this sailboat would go for a sail...I can see all that stuff flying around in the boat.

I can also see a few TV ruined by small leak on the deck, and there will eventually be a leak on that deck with all the hardware on it...

Peter - I think that you may have missed some of the owners feedback about sailing and securing the items that have been installed.

Does he have a water proof box/case for each TV?

This boat is a bit too luxurious for me but I got to admit thats it's a very good looking sailboat.
