That is a pretty cool system... I'll definitely keep that in mind!

Jimbo, Wife was super anti sailboat, wanted hubby to get a MV so they could do their bar hopping lounging thing... These were super nice people who were just looking to get rid of an obstacle to moving towards what they wanted...
We will definitely remain friends, and there are no hard feelings whatsoever...
Andrew gleaned the real reason for the post... More FYI and "don't do this" more than a rant or disappointment...
PS: I've never had to do hull/blister repair like this on ANY of my boats ever... and the time invested with such a small hull
, becoming an expert in yet another skill is well worth it to me!

Beyond a shadow of a doubt!
Sure I could have paid $5-8-10K for a daysailor with no issues... BUT... I saved another future derelict boat to pass on to a new sailor after I'm done with her!
