It should have read "naff sculpture"!
Naff: cheesy, tacky, crappy, in poor taste.
The case in point was giant size sculptures of ropework which had been bigged up before the event as being something special. Laugh? I could have cried!
Yeah those Islanders were nice. In fact, they were NICE! Dream on
Me and SWMBO have just spent ages talking over what we learnt yesterday and ended up right back where we started - buying
an older boat with enough
accomodation and a solid reputation for seaworthiness and go anywhere capability rather than being sucked in by superficial comfort and space which comes at the cost of build quality and durability
That's not to say that I would never contemplate buying
a Legend. We reckoned that if we were planning on sticking to short trips of up to a week or two in coastal waters spending most nights in marinas
we'd have one like a shot. Hell of a lot of bang for the bucks if you don't need heavy weather
capability, liveaboard storage
volume and high intensity use durability.
Can't fault the Legends at all for the way they're thought out, it's just that you can't (it seems to me) get that much space into a 33' boat without compromising the seakeeping abilities to a fair extent and you can't do it at that price
without sacrificing finish quality and solidity.
