Ah-ha! We started windsurfing about the same time, apparently. (My first was a Bic 250 - maybe 25 yrs ago.) We've had our 37' only a year now, so still learning, but really hoping "big" boat sailing can give the same rush as carving the perfect jibe. At least she can take us to some really nice destinations....someday....soon, I hope. Will be interested in seeing your pics, as I wonder how much the interior has changed. Topsides seems similiar, tho ours is a yawl - which I guess means we're not alike at all! -- Ellen

I guess my first board was an Utracat that I raced some. My first shortboard was a Mistral Challenge Flex, but I use custom boards mostly. Some Exocets.... Favorite sailing spots are Pistol River, Or, and San Carlos, Baja. Between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz are some gems too. Since I live in NC I windsurf Wilmington and Hatteras when I can. Looking forward ( no pun intended) to having a couple of boards for Ocracoke.

Anyway, here're some more pics, and as requested some interior shots. Steve has offered to alter some of the wood work along one of the shelfs in order to give more room on the portside 'couch'. It's pretty narrow on this boat due to a design that created a wide bookshelf. My better half is a professor so I'll probably keep the wide book shelf for her.

Regards,
Alan
I'll try to sneak in a windsurfing photo

I have a feeling I'm going to have to do the same with my windsurfing gear.

Maybe I'll get Steve/Raul (production manager) to build me a nice rack for my boards. They'll customize anything you want in these boats.

Hah...I knew a guy who had a big fiberglass tube built about 12 ft. long and about a foot in diameter and then installed on his Hans Christian 33. Inside, he stored a complete ultralight engine powered glider! It looked like he had a cannon on board...but it worked for him!
