[QUOTE=cp1;2068984]I remember what another captain used to say...

The sea finds out everything you did wrong.


...Are you saying the sea is a lot like my ex-wife??

Look, I just don't want your sabbatical to be destroyed dealing with a messed up engine and lots of coins going perplunk. Be vigilant and u will have piece of mind that u gave it an honest look.

Thanks for the the suggestion. The surveyor, who honestly might be the most professional person I've worked with in years, brought in his own mechanic and is also running an oil analysis. I'm doing my best to be diligent.

pirate Re: So I bought a boat...

Hey Reedy.. Congratulations..
When I bought my Bene331 Moorings threw in a brand new set of Doyle sails as a sweetener.. the existing sails were only 5yrs old and barely used being an ex-BVI charter.
I bought two large dry bags for them and stored them under the V-berth.. two years later when the boat was sold they were pulled out and inspected they were absolutely perfect condition.
In your case store them at home.. need one.. get it shipped out to you.

I'm glad you seem to have Alan's concerns covered.

Congratulations! I hope you enjoy every second, and if not, I hope it is at least "interesting times".
