General comments by vendor

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.
