They took possession in Feb... made it to Darwin. (despite failures) spent weeks there trying to have Seawind make warrenty repairs.

I always thought they were a good cat... But After their experience.. I would not consider them.

Just as an aside... hate the helm (having to look through the salon).

anyway... I was very disappointed in their experience.. I hope you have better luck.
Follow up:

I have recently received information regarding this whole situation with my friend's Seawind. It appears that much of the problems can be attributed to inexperience, and poor planning on the part of the owners... And cannot be attributed directly to Seawind.. I've also found out that Seawind has taken care of all of the issues for them....
