Hi John,

Thanks, It has been on the market for a long time.  I guess the pictures are not representative of the real thing.  Considering there have been many that have changed hands during the time that this one has been on the market.  I do notice that the mast is not predent in the pictures.

John,

Did you look at the 1982 41' in Rhode Island before you bought your boat?

Hi John

I would suggest after commenting on your quest that this model and this commander I found on line (even though a broker has it) is looking good and has better head room and would be a better model for resale in the future. Plus I think that although it only has the master and the forward stateroom there also is pull out coach in the salon. If there is a 45 for sale near you go take the family for a look before you decide on a 47 to compare. I believe at your point in your reach it is worth a look and the 8v71N is a bullet proof engine. It is not as fast as some want but you don't have a turbo issue either.
