General comments by vendor
It has met that & more but i've discovered that i think twice before jumping on & off locks & boat that was easy peasy & second nature years ago.
The boat is a good workable length at 50 foot & handles nicely.
Typically strong J Pinder build in good steel.
Over winter period she will be re-engined ( New Beta 38) & docked Feb 2020 with full hull & boat Safety Inspection + blacking. The cost of all of this will be met from the contingency fund and the incoming owner will benefit from this without having to contribute to it
Membership of the group & time on board has been rewarding & enjoyable
I've re-discovered the canals redeveloped & used old skills met some interesting characters, old mates & made new friendships.
