Mr. Chef, your 26 has the outboard engine right? If so that really helps keep costs under control. If it just cost you a few hundred bucks to get it towed to your place, that is not much of a risk, money wise. That is a good way to get into sailing if you ask me.
This winter I will map out the spots that puff up on the deck from the freezing in the plywood core. I'm thinking of marking them with green painters tape and taking photos, then removing the tape(so it doesn't look so silly). That way in the warm weather if I choose to repair something I will know how far the worst of the water damage is.
Minnewaska, no thanks, we just -gave away- a like new, barely used piano!
