Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hi Daviid & Paulo,

I haven't heard people criticize the lack of storage for fenders before - but I totally agree. Our latest boat - Southerly 49 has a large forward "sail" locker but we use it mainly for fenders. When we put to sea we have no fenders out on deck - and we carry a lot of fenders! 4 very large tube fenders, 4 large tubes and 2 smaller. All stowed in the locker.
