I suppose I could add another small blog update.
, I've spent several days sailing around Pula with friends, trying the boat
out and in general spending time on it. Overall things seem fine and so far I'm happy with the purchase
Not all is rosy however: I'm compiling a list of the numerous tiny issues with the boat that I dislike. They range from the cosmetic (e.g. parts
of the interior
are old and funky looking) to the not-so-cosmetic (e.g. parts
of the deck
make a crackling noise
when you walk over them, suggesting delamination
?; stoppers/clutches are old and not aligned properly with the winches; some of the lines are showing signs of old age etc.). So far I don't think any of the issues are urgent to fix, and the plan is to enjoy the Summer and postpone fixing any issues for Winter.
