Luckily, they usually serve it only for Christmas, and it's only a favorite in certain households... of course you should see the faces when I pour Tony Chacere's cajun season on the Christmas food here... :P Hils kona di fra Norge, da!

Re: Hi, all! :)

Seriously, a Morgan OI 33? In Norway?
I'd be thinking about a Fisher instead.

Re: Hi, all! :)

So far, i really like the pictures I've seen of them, but I may feel differently when I set foot on one... ya never know... since they don't manufacture them anymore, a test drive is a bit difficult... :P

Re: Hi, all! :)

It's not a boat I would choose for the North Sea. That is one cold, exposed, uncofortable layout. gimme a pilothouse anyday when I am north of 55.

Re: Hi, all! :)

Most of the bats sit on land here in the winter, or sail south to warmer places in the fall... which is why I wanna buy in the southern states, and come over with it when I feel confident enough.. which could take a while.

Re: Hi, all! :)

Another reason why the OI is not the best choice. I wouldn't cross the Atlantic in one. There are better options.

Re: Hi, all! :)

It'll probably take a while to get the money up, so options are good to explore...
