Re: Going to look at a Watkins 27.....

Got out several times last w/e and twice this past. Seems the engine problems have been resolved with a proper switch on the glow plugs and the new suction/vacuum break on the exhaust.
Yippee!! mo' time actually sailing!
Had a colleague and spouse out this morning. Quiet, 3 kt breeze and glassy smooth waters for their first time aboard a sailboat. Managed to show them about AND hooked them on (almost) silent movement They grinned like Cheshires the whole time...priceless
