Sea trail went well, we're buying the boat. Very exciting! Engine purred like a kitten, no vibration at all, ran nice and cool (164º max), cruises at 7.0 kt. at 80% power. Sails look great, and worked great, film-on-film, mylar laminate - very high tech looking, and set like blades. Autopilot, chart plotter, radar, instruments, inverter, all O.K. Radar is impressive (B&G 4G). Also, a bonus, two sets of cockpit cushions, original white with red piping, and new ones of 'toast' Sunbrella, plus - get this - a Doyle APC asymmetrical spinnaker with ATN sock! Can't wait to close and sail her home to Westport, MA (boat is in Marion).JV, good luck with the sea trial.
