Re: First boat in the country:questions

I'm in Dublin so, if I can sell my 600 to raise the funds, I'll be popping over for your nationals in August. I have a copy of Sten's DVD buried at home somewhere. I need to fish it out over Christmas. In the meantime, I'm a bit unfamiliar with these gnav systems and, given the nature of where I sai...

First boat in the country:questions

Hi all, I'm hoping to take delivery of what I'm pretty sure is the first boat in the country. I've been sailing a 600 for four years and I'm sure I'll have more than a few questions.

Re: Considering buying but worried about mast track reliability

Thanks all. I'm decided. I'll be making the trip over to the UK sometime before or Christmas or early in the new year. I just have to wait for the bank loan to come through!

Re: Considering buying but worried about mast track reliability

Hi Paul and Paul, Thanks so much for your quick and helpful replies. That's a very interesting point about the insurance and the fact that the track can be repaired so readily is a comfort. I had to replace the entire length of track on my 600 last year and the whole process kept the boat off the wa...

Considering buying but worried about mast track reliability

Hi all, After four years of owning a 600, I'm seriously considering 'trading up' for a Musto Skiff. I know there are a large number of sailors in the fleet who have made a similar transition.
