Paolo, I'm not going to argue this to death, it's just my experience that I'm sharing. I've never had a season without some sort of unanticipated failure of something. I'm not strictly referring to the motor or the winches or electronics or anything in particular. It's always something. Every year. For nearly 40. Never been the case with an auto.

In the past 24 months, I've had the wind tranducer fail twice and needed a new Volvo turbo charger and intercooler. I'm also randomly thinking of fresh water hose splits, failed switches, a bad fresh water pump...... I think I'm going to stop thinking about it.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
