Campbdon-

That's kind of why I wrote the Boat Inspection Trip Tips post. If you haven't read it... you need to.

Or are water issues in the core a common concern?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
