    Looks like it's had some osmosis in the past, no? And that mast is probably the original - do masts 'wear' out?


    No masts don't wear out but they can be damaged in various ways and you have to look out for corrosion.

    On the face of it a nice boat. I see your quantum LOA is creeping up :-)

    If you want small and want to go places look at Vertues ... newer ones come in grp for less maintenance ... all in budget. Read up on their history. Slightly bigger budget look at the Wanderer class - then read Hiscock !!

    It's gone from £16,000 to 13,500 and now to 11k. Somewhat tempted

    It was always overpriced! You can get Nic 30s for a lot less.
