Zeehag, I have a mast
on my Chris 410. When I want to sail, I take the bimini
off the flybridge and attach it. Voila! Instant sailboat. Now, for my next lie....
I guess I'm in the sailing group on washing
the boat down with fresh water. Rarely happens unless it rains. I do wash it down with the anchor
hose, though, pumping sea water. Knock the dust off kind of thing. No problems thus far. Same goes for repairs
. Unless it's something major and beyond an old man's ability, I manage to get it done. I do have her hauled and the bottom done every couple of years by the yard people. They seem young and hungry.
