Great vid, do my boat next!

(I have the Tides marine track system too!)

Seriously though, I would like to ask you: Do you like smaller boats/do you have any offshore experience in the 28 to 32 foot range? If so, I'd love to hear any thoughts or insights.

That corrosion you noted on the Stay Lock type fitting on the backstay (8:40 in the vid), was their any visual evidence of anyone trying to fill it/cover it with anything to prevent that crevice corrosion? I have been wondering about stuffing a blob of butyl tape over mine, the ones looking "up" (not installed yet)..
