Slainte Ordered at the Annapolis Boat Show in 2004, Slainte was delivered to us in March of Having lived aboard a sailboat full time for four years, we knew what features we wanted in a long range cruising boat. When we ordered our 38 Endeavour Trawlercat we had specific demands to make our cruising and live-aboard life as easy and as comfortable as possible. Of major concern was dockage. The Endeabour 38 is 16 wide able to fit into standard 45 slips. As a result, we were able to comfortably fit into docks in all of the places we ventured. Another major concern was the height of Slainte. We wanted to run the entire length of the Erie Canal which has a height restriction of 155 on the Western Canal. The Endeavour 38, with only lowering the VHS antenna is able to accomplish this with room to spare. It also allows us to pass under many bridges on the ICW. Economical to operate, Slaintes total fuel burn averages 2 gallons per hour at 7 miles per hour, 3 gph at 9 mph and 15 gph at 16 mph. We wanted a heated cockpit which is accomplished with the rooftop air conditioner. When making a cold weather run it is very nice to sit inside the cockpit and sip coffee in short sleeves as you watch your fellow cruisers pass by all bundled up. I believe the only time we have used the air conditioner to cool is at dock. Slainte has ample storage space for fold up bicycles, dive tanks, golf clubs, spare parts and assorted equipment in storage lockers through out the boat. Slainte offers a very smooth comfortable ride. Her pontoons tend to ride wave top to wave top when in bumpy seas. Slainte is a very comfortable long range cruiser. We have completed three LOOPs, visited the Bahamas, run the Tennessee River, spent summers in Washington and Baltimore, cruised the Chesapeake Bay, looped New York City, cruised Lake Erie, North Channel, Lake Michigan and Lake Ontario, the Canadian Canals and the St. Lawrence River and ran to warm weather for the winters. Our list of places visited by water is extensive but slow cruising was our destination.
