Thanks, Remetau - I had no idea there was an owner's association and will pass that on.

Yes... wellll.... I don't disagree with you TD - you know that.

As I mentioned before, it's personal taste.. Some people (most here actually) happen to LIKE frozen snot!

For my part, I suggested he look at a Hallberg-Rassy or two first - but he said he didn't like them. Never mind. This is what he's got and there's no turning back now.

I can kind-of see what he likes in it: The everything-furling and the teak and bronze (never seen so much bronze!) and the cute butterfly hatch..

I don't yet know who's doing the delivery, but if they stop in Sydney on the way up, I'll let you know.
