Taffy,

Congratulations! You came to the right place (excepting the lawyer-motivated rule of not being able to post negative facts about any products).

There's a thread on how to get the most out of Sailnet, to help with searches, etc. And there are surely other Seawind owners on board.

Just curious, did you buy my friend Glen's boat?

Hi Ian,
I know the feeling well!
Surveys can be a little overrated anyway, they miss things too and besides, _anything_ can be fixed, anything.
I, too, bought a boat (albeit, smaller) without a survey and sight unseen! It was the most rewarded risk I've ever taken, by far. "risk is rewarded, recklessness punished"
Speaking from my experience, you did the right thing. I suspect it will all work out even better than you can imagine!!!

I just took a look at a Seawind ketch on yachtworld 'Rainflower' GORGEOUS!

Are you gonna sail her back to the UK?

follow your bliss!

Just gotta say it, for the benefit of other Sailnets who may be encouraged do something so utterly rash..without a survey you have absolutely no idea what a "good price" for that boat was. I hope you show more caution when you head towards water that is over your head.

You know that you just joined a cult. No not Sailnet, Allied owners. Great Boats and the owners are fanatical about them.

Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.

would be good to hear from you!

Ian
Yes, I've known Glenn for years.

You might want to edit your email to something like "dr dot ianscott hat yahoo dot com" everyone will know what you mean, but the spammer's robot programs won't pick it up as they scour the web looking for emails to spam.
