Well I AM VERY HAPPY ACTUALLY Stuart. The reasons:

1. The boat has Stunning looks
2. It costs less than half of any UK or even European built equivalent
3. Has great sea keeping abilities and capabilities!!
4. Is a very strong construction since it can withstand the panishing of the SAfrican seas (actually one of the UK's very long established boat builders saw the boat while I had it in the UK had with him for 3 weeks, examined everything and found nothing wrong with it not even the wiring!! I'll ask him if he want me to mention his name if he agrees I will do!!)
5. I had the boat now for 2 years and had put it through some rough weather. The boat never developed any problem WHAT SO EVER!!
6. Re wiring saying that some of the wires needed changing, never said that they didn't work. All electrics on the boat work just fine to date. However, have spoken about it with Pieter sometime ago and he said he was looking into it and making the appropriate changes.

Stuart you can slag the boat off as long as you like mate but the boat is BRILLIANT whatever you say and I stand by it 1000000%![B]

JW,
'Combi mat' that John says they use, is woven with a layer of chopped bound to one side, produced to speed the laminating process up, so you don't have to cut and roll in two seperate layers.
So he does have 'fluffy bits' interfacing woven.

Cheers Jon. I guessed that might be the case. Is the csm woven in to some extent or just attached by binder?

I asked this question to Pro Sport and that is exactly what they are doing, except they are e-mailing photo's to me during the production stages that way if anything looks odd I can question it before it's covered by the next build stage.

You only have to ask.
