jhiller: There's been plenty of conversation over on the Krogen Cruiser's site about 39's, but I'm not sure if any 39 owners are over here. Maybe you ought to think about joining up. There's lots of wannabe's over there too.
My own Krogen Manatee is camped out up in Stuart, FL, the headquarters for many Krogen owners, and two 39's behind me at the marina just sold. I've been aboard both and took a short trip on one. All I can say is that, compared to my fat Manatee, the interior is relatively tight, but things like the engine room, pilothouse, maintenance access and sea-worthiness are awesome. Every boat is a compromise, but the 39 has very few. When you see the huge scuppers, mast & rigging, hardware, etc., you know this is a very serious boat.
