Yes indeed but its a start......

First thing I would check would be the babystay issue and the chainplate tangs.... both well documented weaknesses.. and be factoring the cost of getting them sorted into the negotiations..... osmo could be another issue......

One cannot avoid bad weather.

Thus, the statement implies they are not good for crossing oceans.

I threw that in there to avoid the normal production boat debate, but wait, Smacks not here anymore, I guess I'm ok.

Amazing 300 k boat entry level. Soon all these old boats will be far and few and too costly to refurbish correctly thank god. Than I guess all these sailors will retire to trawlers. Lol

Re: Westerly Sealord of Bavaria 38 Ocean?

Bavaria seems to have a bad name here at CF. What many of you seems to not know is the past of Bavaria, before these days when they are pumping out boats from the factory.

If you look at Bavaria 39 Lagoon from 1990, itīs a really good built boat!
