Very nice looking boat. GLWS.

I see the captain seat is upgraded. How did you go about getting that accomplished? Professionally done or did you do it yourself?

Very True! With regards to regret, could not have said it better.

The only time we have regret with our MC is when we take it out of the water too early!

The buyer is definitely getting what he wanted, something different.

I agree it is sad. We've only been in the area that past 5 years or so and my experience with the local marinas has been mixed.

I guess you'll get that everywhere though.

Ours is very close to being level. It settles a bit given that we have a gentle sloping docking area.

I agree an extreme tilt to the stern can cause more harm than good.
