In search of input (pro and con)

Dear friends and fellow sailors,

We'd like to begin including sailors' input about specific models of sailboats. Our reviewers are traveling all over this summer to bring you boat reviews. But sometimes when they're sitting on the boat there's too much wind or not enough wind or no wind at all. Even when the wind cooperates, they can't possibly get -- in a day or two -- the full range of experience that owners of these boats will accumulate in many seasons of sailing. That's where you come in.

One upcoming review boat on our schedule is:
Seafarer 24

Do you have a Seafarer 24? Have you had one in the past? Do you know someone who owns or has owned one?

If yes, we'd like to hear from you. Please send your comments to the guy who manages our boat reviews, Dan Spurr:
danspurr@aol.com

Tell Dan about the sailing characteristics (good and bad), the level of quality in the build, quirky things to watch out for, the good things that are true selling points for this boat, and anything else that springs to mind.

If this isn't a boat you've sailed on in the past, please stay tuned. We'll be sending these messages every so often with requests for input on other boats we'll be reviewing. We're bound to come upon one that is or has been in your collection over the years.

Thanks for sharing your experience with "the rest of us"!

The crew at Good Old Boat
