Re: CS36 Merlin Model Comparison

H Vasco,

She looks beautiful. May I ask why you replaced the Volvo engine? I've seen a 1990 model with the engine replaced as well. I haven't heard anything bad about the Volvo.

Re: CS36 Merlin Model Comparison

As soon as I have some, I'll share them.

In exchange, I'd be curious to know if you employed a de-naming/re-naming ceremony for your boat. It appeared to me in your photos as if the name of the...

Re: CS36 Merlin Model Comparison

Thanks for all this, David.
The '89 has the traveller placed right in front of the binnacle, which it appears to be where yours is now. The '90 model moved it to the coach roof.

Re: CS36 Merlin Model Comparison

Is your model a wing keel? fin? bulb?

Filling the water tank too quickly? Really? Never heard of that.

Do you have a photo of how the traveller is set up? Are you happy with its new...

Funny you listed that one, rugosa.
We viewed it on the weekend and are making an offer this week.

I thought the same thing until I looked at them. The traveller in the 89 is in the cockpit, but in the 90 they moved it to the coach roof. Also, the companionway in the 89 is a ladder, but in the...
