They had me right up until they unveiled the handpainted toilet seat and stained glass hatchboards- tacky.

Wow, that's a beautiful boat. Any idea what those neat interior lights are? I bet they'd look great on my boat (or probably any boat). Also, I like the stained glass sliders in the galley and companionway hatch, but I agree that the toilet seat is a bit much. Perhaps instead of getting one of those privacy films for my head porthole I'll do some stained glass (to put behind the plastic, not in place of it, of course).

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Ditto!

Some labors of love can just get to down right unusable to be practical.

"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.

I bet that it cost a lot less back in 1984. But it has an incredible interior for a 30ft boat, that's for sure
