I purchased the full WB10 with inflatable
tubes and the full performance sailing kit including jib
in 2007 brand new.I have not had a minutes pleasure from it apart from rowing which is not really fun more a bad joke.
The boat has many design faults and very poor manafacture.
Due to the block in the centre rather than aft there is little room for one person let alone passengers.
jumps out of its mounting and the method of fixing to the bow means that it loosens rapidly.
The neck of the boom will fall out of the mast
unless very tightly hitched so that there is no flexibility in mid sail adjustment.
The jib sheets
literally spring out of their cleats
when under any tension.
With an outboard
you have to have a long tiller extension because even a single
person cannot sit at the back without bad wallowing.
I defy anybody to set up the mast
on the water other than in a 0mph wind
because the rubber neck of the boom is such a tight fit into the base of the mast that with the wind
pressuring the sail it needs two people.
Yes it is good for rowing but remember though the boat is advertised as having three functions that are mutually exclusive: if you decide to sail get rigged up but you can't change your mind on the water and row instead as there is no room.
Finally believe me I have spent many aborted trips out with this boat and have got into bad scrapes on Tidal water. It is only fit for messing about on a small inland lake.
I hereby challenge anybody out ther to disagree!
