Just joined up. We recently sold our "woodie" - 40 foot Grenfell - and are now considering a 1985 Trans Pacific Eagle 32.
Would appreciate any feedback from current or past owners of Eagle 32s, especially if you have experienced any problems with leaks through the teak decks.

Welcome to the forum!

I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....

Welcome. 8 years ago we did somewhat the same. Sold our 40' wood powerboat and bought a 32' "plastic snot" boat.

I have a 1987 Eagle 32, all teak decks with no problems. That said I have only owned the boat for a few months. All goes back to previous owner, the more I'm on the boat the more I like it 52 hrs.running time at this point.
