Hi Redcoat, Thanks for your feedback.
Yes, I do have some questions...
How does your Cooper
handle in reverse? Does she prop walk or is there good direction when steering
Is the design known to leak through the mast
, windows or hatches/portholes?
Is she dry under sail or do you get water
over the deck
Are you happy with the size of the pilothouse windows & their safety
aspect in big seas to remain intack?
What is the headroom
in the forward cabin
, head/tub, saloon
Are you happy with the storage
for "boat gear" such as fenders, dock
lines, spare sails
, etc as well as interior
stuff like pots/pans, food
Do you have any issues with the fuel
& water tanks
Are you happy with the sloop
rig or would you prefer a cutter
Are you happy with the cockpit
for room & safety
Does she sail well to windward or is she best reaching?
Do you have the Perkins
4108 or something different?
Is the engine
bay area big enough to work on the motor
How big is the anchor/chain locker?
Is there a 416 owners group established?
I am sure I have other questions but won't overload them on you at this early stage.
I look forward to your reply to the above.
