Please note the parts that have broken have broken and not rotted or corroded off. I feel very strongly now that the stainless issues are the predominate factors as both the stay and front crossbar bridle loop, just broke, and no signs of corrosion to be found.
The transom bolts issue needs discussion, as this is not going to be an easy thing for any of us Getaway owners to deal with. I will put my findings in a new topic as it is extensive.
I like my boat, but think I need one twice as big, as I now think it is only a light weather boat and not able to stand up to vigorous open seas sailing or even areas with heavy power boat wake problems. I am even scared now of taking out in winds over 10 knots, who knows what else is going to just drop off.
