Next, the eyelets through which all the grabropes threaded around the boat rusted away, flaking splinters into boat. Had to cut them all out.
Then the outer layer of paint or colouring started to disappear - maybe a reaction to UV. This left the areas (topsides) where it had gone with a sticky residue - not nice!
I was very disappointed because the boat felt robust and performed well; I expected Honda reliability but it's just their name given to a lower quality manufacturer.
