Beam-Hull Joint: Movement
[from: Robin Geier, 1000-29, Germany, r.geier@talknet.de]
Eldelstahlrahmen der Beamgelenke am Hauptrumpf arbeitet in der GFK Lagerung, dies führt zu Schäden am GFK. Hier hat die Werft einen Lösungsvorschlag erarbeitet, über den ich später berichten kann.

Ansonsten handelt es sich um ein solide segelndes Boot, das auch bei Starkwind angenehm zu handeln ist.
[The stainless steel frames in the joints for the beams on the main hull move slightly and cause same damage to the glass fiber. Quorning has worked-out a solution to this problem. I will report on this later.

Otherwise is the 1000 a solid boat which handles easily sail, even in strong winds.]
