Its always a fine line between putting money into these older crafts or letting them slowly fall apart until they eventually get laid to rest in ones back yard.... From there it is only a matter of months before the wife decides to use it as a flower pot!
I just felt the boat has a good reputation and from what I have read and experienced ticks the boxes, of course a brand new spanking craft has improvements. But I like to think that efforts in revamping an older craft are not in vain. Its a fantastic and rewarding sense of achievement, having a complete new lease of life I am sure will improve the performance
At the very least it gives me great confidence that I know everything works how it should, my slight OCD should also ensure it gives many more years of enjoyment on the water.
