Ditto! I learned a tremendous amount from my surveyor.

The one thing that I would add to the sea trial that I only now understand is that this is the time to perform a detailed inspection of the sails. It is too easy to look up, note how beautiful they are, and move on. However; next time, I will inspect them much more closely. Sails are not the most expensive part of a boat but they are not the cheapest either. | Sailing, development, and life with JD
