Thank you Paulo for the information. Although it wasn't a commercial success are there any problems with the design or boat itself. I noticed the hatches all around are of lower quality than I would expect on an Ocean boat. Many are popping out of the frame and only held in by a thin silicone strip. The port lights are all corroding from stainless screws (not even bolts) touching the aluminum frames and there seems to be a significant amount of water intrusion from the deck. I've tried to contact the manufacturer to check on spare parts, gaskets, etc for the ports but no replys after a week. I've also heard the stanchion posts are a potential source or weak link for leaks. Any thoughts are appreciated.
