No doubt COVID has hampered cruising, but wondering how your experience of cruising the Pogo is going? As I get near to putting a deposit on a boat (unsailed and unseen) I’m getting nervous about such a leap from convention (Hanse, Jeanneau etc). I have no doubt she sails beatifully, but logistically will it cruise comfortably (I’m expecting glamping) and is there adequate storage etc in such a paired back interior. Any insights would be much appreciated because clearly I’m not popping over to France to see one before I sign on the line, and nobody has one here in NZ
If the compulsory ladder is the same as the Dad’s on the Jeaneau, then it is relatively unsupported internally and will fatigue and break of when hit but an slightly lazy ferry from a local cafe Please post pictures of your light weight solution when you get one made, intrigued to see what you come up with. The family holidays will be AWESOME!
Wish I’d got my boat before kids, much harder the other way around. I have two comments about this photo... The compulsory emergency ladder hanging out, same thing happens on my father’s boat all the time. We’ve solved it by removing the ring pull and replacing it with a knot that hangs down and doesn’t snag on the tender. What is the stern ladder? Looks interesting.
