Let's face it. We're sailors. We have no manners.

Manners are boring. Sailing is fun. It's really pretty simple.

Petersailor some people like to sleep on the ground in open air, some like a tent with a roll, some like a tent with a cot, some like a travel trailer with a mattress and some like a motorhome, all of that is called camping, just at different levels. The same counts for sailboats and sailors. I for one think that Oceanaire has a beautiful IRWIN there that is being sailed (6000 miles in a couple of years) and apparently more so than many of us that maybe sail a couple of hundred miles a year.
The finish is fantastic, the IRWINs are great boats (I don't know why people think different) and good sailors. A finish like that as the owners said does not take much to keep it nice.
Great boat with a wine cellar I envy

A paradigm shift means to have a sudden change in perception, a sudden change in point of view, of how you see things.

You have your view of how the interior of your Irwin 52 should look and others have their view. To understand each other's view - each party would need to have a paradigm shift.

What's probably most important is that each of us is happy and/or content with their own boat.

Thanks for making the time and effort to share some of your happiness.

I've been a real estate appraiser in Los Angeles for the past 20 years and, for the most part, I get to visit pretty ordinary homes on a daily basis. However, every once in a while, maybe a few times a year, I get to see inside somebody's vision. It could be the powder room that came straight out of a car on the Orient Express, or the kitchen that was shipped over piece by piece from a French bakery or Julie Andrews' magical glass dining room set in a garden of flowers. It doesn't even matter so much that I particularly like it, but it's just such a treat to see what can happen when someone has a vision and invests the time, money and love to see it to fruition. This was my first response to Oceanaire. My hat's off to the owners of Oceanaire for creating YOUR vision of the perfect boat. Well done.

Just stay out of the "rubber room". That one sounds scary.

Mike well said rubber room or not.
My vision is to have an all naked female crew between the ages of 25 & 40. It's a vision but it will never happen, at least I can dream about it.
Apparently Oceanair owners acted up on their dream and vision.
