Re: Replacing Halyards, metal or rope?
Hi Nielsen -
After almost purchasing a few other boats, we're considering an 82 E32 right now. (Sadly nowhere near your price point...!) While somewhat old-school in many respects, not the most efficient use of space below, etc- I feel the Endeavour has some nice qualities, particularly for new sailors on the Great Lakes.
Unfortunately if we do end up purchasing we would not be putting it in the water until next spring- but we do like the boat. We've had ASA 101 training but other than that are gleeful newbies...
How did the summer go on the boat? Would be interested to hear about your experiences as new sailors, particularly aboard the E32 - and anything else good or bad you care to share about the boat, learning experiences, improvements you've made, etc.
