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
