Doesn`t "Saloon" connote a bar,a room in a public house,etc? In desperation I`ve taken to calling it "the main cabin", I don`t think it`s a salon or a saloon.

I have used Saloon in conversation with brokers and other boaters and have always been corrected to salon. So I guess it depends on who you talk to. I'm with BruceK, lets call it the main cabin.

Once again Mr Fly you are correct I found this on a boating term site.



Saloon = Living room

The social area of a larger boat is called the saloon. However, it is pronounced “salon.”




You learn something new everyday

Greetings,


Saloon:


Word Origin & History

1728, anglicized form of salon, and originally used interchangeable with it. Meaning "large hall in a public place for entertainment, etc." is from 1747; especially a passenger boat from 1817, also used of railway cars furnished like drawing rooms (1842). Sense of "public bar" developed by 1841, American English.


The reason bars in the old west were dubbed saloons was to lend a note of refinement to what otherwise was simply a p*ss joint that sold rotgut and on occasion, I expect, women although don't let Miss Kitty know that...

She's already got you inline for the honey do's boat style.

Be sure to have "change impellers" on your pre-departure list. We met some folks about a month ago who were delivering someone else's boat from Annapolis to St. Thomas, and when they were about a day into the trip (and offshore), they started to get some high engine coolant temps. Both impellers looked like they were at least 4 - 5 years old. One had literally no vanes left intact! Fortunately, they had spares.

We need to inventory the parts that were left on the boat from the PO. I was told that he was the type of boater that purchased 3 replacement parts when he needed one, so there are a lot of new parts on the boat that I need to go thru and inventory. I know as I looked thru the boat before and after the sea trial there is a lot of new packages stuffed in all the cabinets. But I will be sure to add one or two if I don't find any.



Thanks for the reminder.

Salon/Saloon are both anachronisms.
Is it ok to have a spittoon in the saloon?
But does "main cabin" cut it? It`s a euphemism for the "coach" or "economy" cabin on a plane. On a boat would people think it meant the principal sleeping cabin. Or should that be a "stateroom",which sounds so grand.
On balance, I still prefer main cabin for what is essentially the living room. But I don`t think it is in general use.

Just be cautious on impellers and other plastic or rubber parts as they will deteriorate over time.

Excellent point! And a good electronics install will take a bit of time... planning, install, and setup/calibration and working out the bugs.

The only thing really needed to get home is a simple chart plotter, depth and a VHF. Ipad is a great backup and planning tool.

Back to non business me. You focus too much on too far out and you fail to focus on the present and next year. You miss it. It passes you by. You miss the boat the OP bought now. I hear people all the time talking about "when the time is right" or worse, "when I have no stress" and s... like that. Well, the time never comes. I know a family planned a reunion but they were waiting until there was a time everyone could come. Well, many dead now and still no reunion.
GREAT reminder. Many of us have long term plans and think, "ahhhh, there's plenty of time"..... and it never gets done.

Keep these two words in mind, "Analysis Paralysis." I've seen businesses destroyed by the practice and I've seen personal relationships destroyed.

Wrapped up

The new to us boats has been wrapped up this week and is all ready to spend a frozen winter in Connecticut. My wife is xing out everyday on the calendar. She just can't wait to get on the boat and start planning the Saloon (got it right this time) layout.

Greetings,
Mr. CR. Planning is good BUT!!!! I very strongly suggest you don't actually DO anything until after you've lived with the boat for at least 6 months (preferably 1 year).
What may seem like a better idea now, may not prove to be. Do the minimum to get her livable and comfortable for the first bit THEN make changes. I suspect both of you will have a lot to keep you busy just catching up on deferred maintenance and repairs without making any changes right away.

Hi Mr. Fly
I would normally agree with you, and I'm going to PM you the Broker's video link and you will see the saloon is very scarce. There is no settee, very little counter space, pretty much just a refrigerator and a sink with a movable table. And the wife said I should throw the coach overboard LOL. It is not as if we are changing the saloon, we are starting from scratch. Take a look at the video and let me know what you think. I will appreciate your opinion.

Wifey B: You do what makes you feel right. If couch (or coach) sucks, dump it. If you don't like the colors, change them. It's your and your wife's boat, so make it really yours. You're not talking about spending thousands just to change something that works fine and you don't like. You're talking about something that will change the feeling and aesthetics and make you both happier on board.

And for the record, it's freaking cold here in NC. 48 degrees and going down to 38 degrees. Maybe I shouldn't have worn a tshirt and booty shorts but more comfy on the ride and now in the hotel and out of them and comfy. Did have a jacket when out of the car. People look at you funny wearing shorts, tshirt and jacket but I made hubby wear the same so they thought we were both crazy. And I'm so excited to see the kids tomorrow and I don't care how cold it is. Supposed to be mid 50's. It's almost Christmas you know....

Christmas morning I'll get to see 111 happy smiling faces of all religious backgrounds, all ethnicities, all races, all sexes and orientations, all wonderful marvelous fantastic amazing incredible beautiful kids.

Yeah, I know.....way way way way way off topic, but had to insert it and now I'll figure out a way to tie it all together and back to the topic. Watch this and learn from a pro.

The point is listen to advice, but do what makes you happy. If it means making some changes so it really feels like yours, then do so. You're really talking minor stuff in the course of things. Colorful pillows, paintings, crazy knick knack one of you loves for who knows what reason. And have fun. Fun fun fun.
