Some fun, but mostly continual work fixing, repairing, more fixing, rebuilding, etc., etc.

Sorry to hear the bad luck with the Astus.  I've ordered a SeaRail 19 and hopefully it won't have similar problems.

I suspect the SeaRail is a very nice boat. If they had built it in a 16 or 17 footer, that's what I would have bought.

Tom,

What kind of repairs have been required considering you've only sailed with the boat 2x? (fyi i'm new to all this, so I'm having difficulty imagining what could go wrong without the boat having been sailed).
