Thanks/Regarding the Condition of the Sails
Thanks for the input.
Regarding the state of the sails, the boat is a 2004 model, and has been lightly used (day sailing, never cruised). The boat is like new, according to Valiant's National Sales Manager, Wally Wells. (It was the show boat for last year's local boat show, so Wally was on it for several days.) The owner loaded it up with a lot of high-quality equipment, and then, due to personal problems, had to put it up for sale. The engine has fewer than 250 hours on it.
I will be sailing it the weekend after next. I would have done so this weekend, but the death of an in-law requires that I be available to go to Southern California for the service.
Thanks again for your reassuring comments.
