General comments by vendor
Having previously owned our own boat, we decided that we would like to buy a share 2 years ago, as an alternative to regular hiring.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our cruising with Black Watch, which is in very good shape, well managed and with a healthy reserve balance in the bank to meet future expenditure, which the new owner will benefit from without payment.
We shall be sad to leave such a friendly and mutually helpful group of owners
