Thanks Mexdon, I'm already gathering your remark on the opinions is well founded.
Yacht was surveyed yesterday - surveyor
was completely smitten before she got out of the water
and couldn't find anything wrong above the waterline. Doesn't happen often. Unfortunately, when hauled ashore we saw some osmosis
below the water
line. Thankfully my dad is a paint
expert with experience in yachts so it will all come right but we still have some accord to make with the current
owner as there will be a substantial additional cost. No reason to assume the deal will not go through, though. I'm very glad I bought her just before winter - plenty of time now to sort things out and do courses in warmer climes! And, of course, I will know for certain she'll be good to go for quite some years.
