Just curious why we have not seen many NB 36s built since General Marine got the molds. I know the NB 38 is a beast and all but would thing a few 36s, I think 1 to date (Nightingale) has been built.

Eslang's 36 was a gm36 and he has nothing but great things to say about them. I think the main reason is that the 38 is the same price and pushes easier and is much bigger. Also gm does not really market the boat very well, they need to catch up with the times and update there web info.

My friend and I built ours at the same time. His is the red one, Buddy B, finished by SE Newman. Mine was white, Meghan Ann, finished by Alan Johnson. Both boats are built like brick shit houses. Stacie is a great, stand up, guy who over builds a hull & top.
As far as the 38 or the 36 being a better boat, I can't comment on the 38 but both of these 36's have been out in some weather!!! Both have proven themselves to be great sea boats. Both have comparable HP and top out at 30 KTS
To my knowledge, Stacie built a few before and after us.
