True, Walt. It's difficult to figure out what to do with the empty space. This was the only thing Don could figure out to do with it.

Thanks Codger2.
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.

Much appreciated.
Tim.

I knew it! I just knew it! People in Tenn always told me that Don is a "sweet talker."

I have no plans to be in Huntington Beach until September but if the boat is still for sale I'll try and get aboard it. (There's the Lido Boat Show just south of HB in Newport Beach and I always go to it.)

After re reading the listing, there's not much I would change. I saw no mention of a modern chart plotter and the radar is ancient. I would definitely change those out.

When you have the opportunity to actually spend a few nights aboard an Ocean Alexander 42 Sedan, you ask yourself "why" did OA discontinue building that model?

I just remembered I have this article, written in 2001, about the 42 OA.
