| | Ah Ha... The 41
I love the 41. Glad you are starting a thread.. we will be anxiously awaiting your next pictures!!
I can't believe nobody has picked up that 41 in Alexandria Bay NY. that one looks sweet too! They were a lot more expensive than the 38.
Prices now are the same and 41's are more rare... Beamy mothers they are (15'!) Now conditon is the determinant it appears... We want you to take a show!
I like the triple windows. A 41 can be a nice live aboard.. 38 is too small... more sporty type, less yachty perhaps, something like that.
Cheers.. we be watching your 41 like Roamerhawks!
I mean think about it.... A new Sea Ray like this would be probably 500-550k, is made of basic fiberglass, you can't sit up front, can hardly walk arount it.. and in a head-on, A Roamer will PULVERIZE it.. PLUS, a Roamer can hit a Pile of Rocks and still not sink or blow a hole. So heck, paint job and motor work makes sense to me.. plus come on.. Look at the lines on this 41.. That's as good as it gets.. at least to my eyes.... The other thing about the 41, if you power it right... it will haul fanny and has a nice running attitude, better than the 38 actually.. rides more level.. the 38 is more likely to need trim tabs at a slower plane. Remember, Homer was into these bigtime as a kid.. there were many, well not many but enough up on the St. Lawrence and the Great Lakes.... very rare on the Chesaeake Bay.
If someone likes this model... what about looking at the one for sale in Alexandria Bay NYS on the Saint Lawrence Seaway?
It's good if the steel is good.. need to check, but chances are pretty decent up there it is. Again, these are rare, most people could not afford this model back then... hence 37's/38's more common. A loaded 41 with diesels was 80k!
