I agree my freinds purchased a CS merlin 36 and love her dear le. She is a great boat and can hold her own in any storm. Plus she has a great interior lots of room. Canadian Sail craft built a solid boat. They look great and sail very well and beside they were built with canadian pride and hold their price like gold. Its a no brainer Which one you chose to me lol.

Re: Cs36t or e38
The CS has a better rep than Endeavours and the CS rep is deserved. They were one of the very best quality boats built in Canada - most regard them as a notch or two above C&C for build quality. They also hold their value well.

Cs36t or e38
I have been searching for a new(to me) live aboard cruiser, I have found two that I like. They are different boats but both have things that I like about their design one is a 1985 endeavour 38 center cockpit and the other is a 1986 Canadian sailcraft 36 traditional.
Both deals seem to be equal, I am looking for advice which boat would be better to live aboard while doing some blue water cruising, starting with the carribean and then further.
