during the late 1970's when I had a deal with a fellow that I could use his Grampian 26 in exchange for teaching him to sail and maintaining his boat. There were several other Grampians in town and the owners all seemed to know each other and have similar kinds of problems and so I spent a lot of time on these boats trying to sort out poor build quality issues.
What quality issues would that be? My only dealings with Grampian were in the Oakville outfit during the mid 70's until they went bankrupt. I did hear of problems with the U.S. plant.
