Comments of a Jefferson please

Hi Folks,

I looked at a '89 Jefferson 40 convertable sedan the other day. The boat has some odd issues that made be concerned that some major repair was done on the boat.

The cockpit and fly bridge flooring did not have the neat diamond pattern non-skid you see on most boats. It had a rather dull looking non-skid that was for lack of a better description a flake pattern. Random sized flakes painted into the floor. The edge of a panel where you would see the non-skid end say around a corner was there like you would typically see. This just seems rather strange for such a quality boat.

Another issue is the salon floor is the same as the deck. No teak and holly sole just a fiberglass non-skid the same as above. It looked OK, but again seemed not quite right.

Lastly, 2 walls in the hallway between the salon and fwd stateroom are exposed painted fiberglass. The rest of the boat has the fine woodwork other Jefferson's have. I can tell these fiberglass walls were painted since the boat was built because a slight amount of paint is on the teak trim that surrounds the fiberglass walls.

There are other Jeffersons's 40 sedan's *for sale, but pictures of these don't show the areas in question well enough to determine if this was how they came from the factory.

The rest of the boat did not show anything unusual, and I don't really think there was major repair work done, but I'm just wondering if anyone knows these boats well enough to provide information. Furthermore, would anyone care to comment on the Jefferson's in general.

Thanks Guys,
