Remarks
'Wow' a great boat with heaps of extras. She needs an antifoul and it's next adventure. The last survey in 2016 says "The Roberts spray has been built to a high standard and is a credit to the builder".
There are no observable buckling of plates, cracks or stress fractures that suggest movement of stringers, frames or bulkheads and in a yacht of this age it indicates a robust construction. The deck layout and composition is excellent and as with the topsides there are no stress fractures or damage. Call Glenn on 0414 988 273
