I've dreamed of owning a Swan ever since the first time I laid my eyes on one back in the '70s. It was only recently Ericson
came on our radar screen
, after we actually started seriously looking to buy a boat. At first, I didn't even look for Swans because I thought any in our price
range would be a major project
We're going to be looking at the E38 Thursday. So we'll know a lot more after that. The Swan is a 12 hour drive, one way, so for now we have to go on pics and written description.
All things being equal, it's a no-brainer. But they aren't and seldom are.
We're putting together information sheets
on boats that interest us. On them we're including information like recent updates and condition of big ticket items. The vast majority of boats are on the east coast
. We're planning a trip out there late July or early August. The Swan would have to be another trip.
But I was just wondering, at first glance kind of thing, what the reaction would be to the two boats and if that 8 year age gap would make that much difference - assuming they have both been maintained properly.
