Having grown up reading the Bangor Daily News I can feel pretty good about stating that Morris told them this and it isn't in quotes because it is paraphrased.My favorite line from the article:
"Given current economic conditions, the small M29, at $185,000, is a more affordable day sailer that still can keep people on the water."
LOLOL; having been a BDN reader for almost 20 years, I would have to say that you have a keen political tongue and a clever turn of phrase. :laugher I'm actually surprised they spelled Morris correctly!Having grown up reading the Bangor Daily News I can feel pretty good about stating that Morris told them this and it isn't in quotes because it is paraphrased.
Success is not measured by material possesions either...there are other ways to measure success.I've not been involved in the sailing community/market very long. 5 years to be exact. It's been long enough to know that talking about a Morris would be the same as talking about a RR or other high quality built expensive fine automobiles.
Sailing a Morris, Oyster or such type or driving a Ferrari or RR does not make one a better person. Maybe more fortunate or lucky... not that LUCK has very much to do with success most of the time anyway.
Aww man.. Why's you have to go and mention the M42? I just went to look at it and now I want nothing else. MAN that's a pretty boat.I ABSOLUTLY Lust after the Morris 42. The interior layout is outstanding and she is just a beautiful yacht. I need to wait for the "pre-owned" market kicks in. The wife loves it as well, just not in the cards for now, and most likely not in the future either. But I sure can dream...........
