I believe the Downeaster boats were built in Santa Ana, not the Far East.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

I looked at a DE38 in San Pedro a few years ago that had a wooden rail (taffrail?) around the back of the cockpit rather than a SS pushpit. It was one of the very few "modern" boats I've seen where that sort of thing actually looked like it belonged there.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

Yep, it's certainly a DE38. We looked at about a dozen of them when we were shopping for our live-aboard cruiser. It was our first choice, but eventually we settled for our Vagabond 39. Many times I've wondered what would have gone differently had we been able to find a DE38 instead...

If you are looking for first-hand info, current member and contributor gtod25 used to own one and cruised aboard her extensively.

Cheers,

The Downeaster's owners forum is a great resource ... Downeasteryachts.com. We own and liveaboard a DE32. Great boat!
