My daughter is an experienced sailer. A few weeks ago, while sailing in Friesland, she spotted a sailboat for sale. She knows market prices and it took her less than five minutes to make, what she thought, a good deal.

And she was right. It needs some minor repairs, a little paint here and there and she has installed an autopilot, but otherwise this boat is nice. Perfect one cylinder diesel, it goes plop-plop-plop. This is on the Markermeer.
