Re: Are Amel boats quiet?

I agree that SM is a very quiet boat. Essentially no squeaking in big seas and wind, and a tiny bit of thermal expansion/contraction noise. There is one way that the SM makes some noise though, and I feel it needs to be mentioned (there was even a thread about it not long ago): waves slapping against the stern. This is most noticeable when the boat is empty (i.e. new to you). Filling the boat with stuff, especially the stern locker, significantly reduces the noise. You'll get used to it quickly, as well. I don't recall hearing it in a long time, but it was very noticeable the first few days after we bought it.
