Be sure to also join the Grand Banks forum... Lots of good resources and knowledge there too, but a lot less traffic than this forum. Also the GB group on Facebook. We have a 1990 GB 32, which was the smallest model they built. I just learned the 32s are referred to as 'baby grands,' which I though was rather charming. Welcome to the GB 'cult!'

You are correct on the designers - my error. It was Joseph Kong, the GM of American Marine that formed the joint venture with Halvorsen to form K&H.

Welcome aboard...and congrats on the new GB36! Nice boat.

I bought a 1977 well maintained 34 LRC 12 yrs ago and found that it takes a lot of time and effort or a lot of money to keep up with the shine (paint/FG and brightwork). It also cuts into the fun time to operate the boat while simultaneously diminishing funds for other important things like other boat electronics and gadgets and fuel.

Therefore, I have decided that I will no longer be a slave to the boat shine. I will clean, maintain and enjoy my boat, but I'm not chasing the shine any longer. I think I've hung up my varnish brush for good.

I feel liberated!!


Happy 20/20!!
My boat is my ark. It's my mobile treehouse and my floating fishing cabin. It's my retreat and my respite. Everyday I thank God I have a boat! -Al FJB
