Hi, any owners of Spirited 380's are welcome to get in contact via this site, or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
. We are interested to exchange ideas on improvements. There's 7 or 8 now sailing as of Feb 2009. The general comment is the design is great, with excellent sailing performace. Concerns being raised so far: engine
hatches leaking, failing fan belts on the Nanni's, coolant leaks
problems (clutches), cracked heat exchangers, and saildrive
leg anodes. Factual, non-emotional feedback is very welcome. I don't know if anyone has tried Yanmars yet in the 380 - would be interested to compare notes.
