This boat was purchased on Valentines Day of 05 and made it through the hurricane season later that year luckily with only minor damage. I decided to refit the boat and as you can tell I've accomplished allot. I started with the major systems and have mostly completed my goal but one never really finishes and thats part of the fun. I've really enjoyed the challenge and the boat itself. Like all boats there are still areas that need love and attention and I will gladly point them out. There's nothing major but for someone who likes to sail and tinker this is a great boat. Since the rebuild she has made one trip through the Gulf and sailed very well even in rough weather. For the size, comfort and cost. She's ready to go hard to beat.
