    Yep. Probably 40 local craft brewers in city of 1.3 mill. And some really good ones in the Rockies. We have great barley and water in this part of the world.

    I like to support the local dealer. He will have a stock of boats - ZIMs - for the first time in years. I can look at it before I buy it to check for issues.

    The local dealer is selling Zims. If I was in the market, I would buy from him. I would buy from him if he was selling ILCAs from the UK, Argentina, Poland, Australia, Thailand or Italy.

    Well, there was a photo of one with a cleat on backwards while still in the shop. And there was one with a leaky bailer that Robbie spoke to. The And then there was Julian B’s glowing report and reference for the builder. What other comments based on actual experience are there? I phoned a...
