The world is small

No, the problem started on the anchor locker and it was by that place that the water entered on the core.

That was the entry place. Obviously the water was on the hull and not only on that place. They are selling the boat cheaply and if the boat is in fact repaired could be a good deal, however I know little about how to repair a boat with water on the core.

Ask on this forum. There are some boat builders and shipyard workers and lots of experienced people around.

If I was you I would talk or ask a Pericia to Luca Marziale. He works for Commar but also independently as a Perito Navale. His link to Comar puts him on a dubious position however I have a very good impression about him. He is very competent and I would say honest too.

I asked him a Pericia on Sottovoce and it was him that detected that the boat had an humid hull. Off course I also had done my homework and understood what he was saying to me and what that data mean regarding the hull.

Ask them exactly how the hull and the core was repaired ask for independent opinions regarding the effectiveness of that reparation and measure hull humidity.

It is a pity. Sottovoce with exception of that is in great condition and it is a beautiful boat.




Regards

Paulo

Jesus what are they doing on Groupama!!! they could have a look at this thread. Like I had said, they maintained course .... Telefonica went away and the West group overtake them

Film from Lidingö Runt

Hi Paulo,

Here´s a short film from the regatta Lidingö Runt, showing some nice boats (among them Elan 350, Aspect 40, X-35, Dufour 36e Performance (Ecolution), Finnflyer 36 (Black Pearl), Seaon 96, First 36.7 (Arken Zoo), Mannerberg 38, Xp 38 and more)!

It´s interesting to see the HRs´ and Najads´ evolving to more normal sailboats than just big, heavy motorsailors. My mother is on Orust today to pick up her new HR 310, ordered with small bowsprit, Asymetric spinnaker and code 0. Should be interesting to go for a ride on that boat! She sent me some pictures the other day, from the shipyard.

Yes, it looks a very well balanced sailboat. It seems that they have so many orders for it that they are not even very interested in promoting the boat. No publicity on magazines and not even photos on their website

For seeing the boat people have to rely on out side sources like this thread or Blur

Thanks for posting that and the Lidingo Runt movie Nice boats there. I will try to have a look to see if we can have comparative real time performances.

Regards

Paulo

Hei, nice boat

Congratulations to your mother

Give us some impressions about the ride on that HR 310. I bet the boat even if not with performance cruiser performance will sail rather well.

I do really think that it is a very nice boat. Pity the price a bit too high for most of the sailors.

Regards

Paulo

Lidingö runt 2012 offered very shifty and light conditions and I am not so sure the real time performances will be rightous to the boats. Might be useful though to compare boats in the same start. IIRC the wind was stronger during the early starts. What is really cool though is that a Nacra 20 was only 9 seconds behind the Marström M32 on elapsed time (same start group I think)!

I will! They will cruise from Orust, around the south of Sweden and then up to Stockholm during the next 6 weeks, but when they arrive I will try to get a ride.
