I say I don't know.

You say salon and I say Saloon. In the sailing world, which one is correct?

No one knows the answer? It can't be that hard.

Ok, are there any citizens by birth here? Don't tell me, all of you are imported and went through Ellis Island

I say livingroom, because I don't know whether it's a salon or a saloon either. I always thought a saloon had double swinging doors and served drinks and a salon was a place women went to catch up on gossip and get their "hair did."

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.

I think saloon is correct because it is a place to relax and enjoy some wine with companions. I also checked Beneteau site, they use saloon instead of salon. Since they are French, they will more critical about the proper translation than the natives.

I will use saloon from now on until someone gives me a better (correct) answer with the proper references.

For the longest time, I can't understand why we don't say "Mary Land".
