May work too w both wannabe slab things to match.

But then the lines of the FB cover is a killer. FB cover would need vertical pipe support too.

Boat in lower picture looks really nice .. good.
You could be right about that, Eric. As it is there are just too many jumbled lines in the mix. That is my opinion only.

Which one of you is this??

I'm with you on the slabs and hardtop. I like the slabs when they run parallel to each other. When they start going in different directions, I lose interest.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. When you get sick of someone trying to jam their opinion down you throat without allowing anyone else the freedom to express their own opinion, there is an easy solution.


Step #1: [Left-Click] UserName.


Step #2: [Left-Click] "Add <Jackhole> to Your Ignore List"

It's an easy way to solve a problem. Personally, I like to see ALL the opinions. The ones I get to laugh at make me feel better about myself.

Not sure that ever happens on this forum as there is no way to deny any member the freedom to express their own opinion. All a member has to do is post his or her opinion to the forum and there it is for all to read.

So far as I know, the only way this freedom can be removed is by an action of the administrators.

Selenes as do all vessels have some design warts. A few years ago I was chasing a 58 very hard and did not miss the deal by much. It had a white hull, much preferable to the blues that had several repaints painfully done under warranty.

So no, I would not want that vessel unless a lighter hull color.

No Walt. I just tied it on to the outriggers.

Sunchaser,
What were the problems with the blue hulls? I'm asking because we're considering one. Thanks

A lot of people don't like the dark hulls as they show every drop of water that gets on them. (Unless, of course, its deionized water!) I had a blue hull and rinsed it off after every outing with Deionized water, no wiping the hull dry, just let it air dry. It's just like using Jet Dry in your dish washer for your fine glass ware.

So Shrew,
You have jamming rights as well. What's your take on wannabe windows?

The story I was given was mold release timing or wrong products resulting in surface irregularity which on a blue hull is quite noticeable. Sun and heat buildup then came into play.

More details were provided to me which are not internet fodder.

A bit of clarification. After checking Selene Owners site, " First Snow" isn't registered there. At least not yet.

And thanks Marin for your opinion. 99 percent of the time, I'm in total aggrement with you.
But not this time, might be a bit bias, but I think Selene's are Purdy!

Re Don's pictures :The Grand Banks I could live with the top one not so much. Of course you can see from my avatar what I like in a boat.
To each their own. Or the world would be boring.
