I can attest to Jeff''s statement. This year we decided to put our H26 in a slip from April to November to save launching and retrieving time. We hauled it after 6 weeks to do some work on it, emptied the ballast tank, and whew, what a stink. We do not, however, smell anything while being aboard the boat in the water. One proposed solution is to fill your ballast tank with fresh water if at all possible. Avoid adding chlorine bleach since the rod attached to the tank plug on the bottom of the boat is stainless steel.
Otherwise, this is a remarkably comfortable boat for its size and living on it is feasible. But would I want to? No way. I would, however, strongly prefer it to a tent or a bad neighborhood.
