Always nice to hear from a happy owner; current or past.
I've been an OA fan since the Mark II hit the water and although I have waffled back and forth, I keep coming back to OA for our waters.
Would love to have a 55 Fleming but obviously it would need to be named Lottery. Grand Banks 42 Classic has appeal but for the same money I can go with an OA 42 that's 10 years newer and I have also always preferred sedans.
That one I linked is just up the road from you and at least the listing makes it look good.
I won't likely go down there but, maybe if you have the time and patients, you could look over the specs and suggest what you might add or throw away?? Your input would then apply to any similar OA.
If you PM your thoughts that would be great. If not, hey, no harm asking, right.
