    Issues

  • Boat takes on water slowly during sailing. Whether this is due to a problem with the hull or simply because it is stored dry and rarely sailed is unknown.
  • Trailer is very old and heavy; serviceable for occasional local transport, but not for frequent use or long, high-speed trips.

    Thanks Dave for the reminder. I did sell the boat about 3 weeks ago and forgot I still had the ad out there. You may cancel it or let it expire.
    I seem to recall that you accept donations to support your service. If that's still true, please let me know where I might send you a small contribution.
