Launched for the season today!

Great three hour run in 48 degree weather, 10-15 kt NW breeze, from yard to our home mooring. Everything (engine, electrics, new prop, new electronics and all other systems) worked perfectly. Time to enjoy!

Not only do you run a great forum, you also have "excellent taste" in boats!

RE: Launched for the season today!

Thank you sir. We had an opportunity last summer for a IG39 Eurosedan. It was a 2003 model that was never titled. The dealer went out of business and the bank repossessed the boat. We watched the price go from over 200k to $199k to $179k all the way to $149k. And that 149k was asking price so no telling what it actually sold for. Anyway, still too much cash for us but someone got a screaming deal!!!! The owner of the defunct dealer kept the IG32 for himself. The IG39 is berthed just 2 slips down from it's smaller sibling. Who knows, maybe the dude bought it back from the bank for pennies on the dollar????....lol

I know the dealer and the boat. I almost made an offer but when I gave it a lot of thought, we decided that our 32 fit us just fine and the extra length of 7 feet meant higher cost for* diver, slip, wash and wax, etc. As you said, he kept the 32 also.
