|praise and criticism
||Sailboat is almost new (2007), but there were many small troubles with
equipment all the time. Sometimes GPS didn't work, I had to repair
antenna by myself. When we were leaving, alarm (SOS) started to give
signal, we had to switch off VHF and GPS for a while. Sometimes
echo-sounder showed something strange - 7-8 meteres instead of 70-80
throught the chart. Water didn't go out well in one of showers.
Sometimes anchor winch became jammed, at the end of trip electric
preventer worked all the time we used anchor winch, what was really
dangerous in the strong wind. There were not enought fenders on board
- we will be glad if we have 4 more, because moorings in Greece
sometimes are really difficult. Marina Alimos is very crowded, it is
difficult to moor there for beginners. Service in marina is awfull -
only 2 toilets and showers, and they are working only from 8:00 till
But all the other was wonderfull. Very kind staff of chartercompany,
very responsive owner of the boat, the boat is super-clean, tidy, and
everything is well organized. Sails, winches, engine, Dinghy,
emergency equipment are Ok.
Good service of charteragency, especially your Russian representive
(Maria) - I want to say thank you to her for detailed and pationed
explanations of all the details of charter. My desire: can you include
insurance service at the package of charter - because it is really
difficult to transfer money from Russia to German company via bank
transfer. That's all.
