Ours arrives in Australia
We went to Auckland
to see the first one to arrive in Australasia.
It was parked beside a Lavezzi
40 at the show.
In my view the 36 had almost as much volume as the 40. The headroom
and access to the saloon
was infinitely better in the 36 and I am 6 foot 4" tall !!
We went for a sail on the Monday in 25 knots but since it was a delivery
straight into the wind
there was not much real sailing more motoring with the main up slightly off course.
What sailing we did do showed a responsive boat
. I liked it and the clearance was fine. No banging of the middle of the baot.
Very happy so far.
The factory bimini
sucks but I think we have all agreed on that point before.
We will design a new bimini
when it gets here.
I am happy with my decision to have an additional winch
on the port cabin
top and I think we can get the lead right so that one is not needed in the cockpit
