The Hungarian refit
On the old Alacrity site are a few pictures of "Bellissimo" the boat a guy named Oskar keeps on lake Balaton in Hungary. I just recieved an email from him where he tells me about the complete refit he has recently completed. He has uploaded more than 70 pictures to the yahoo-group documenting it, but here is some sort of summary.
As lake Balaton is quite shallow the probably most important change was that he cut 15cm off his boat's keels.
He also repainted the boat white.
The interior does look nice and fresh as well.
The boat also got a new name: Sail-Face, which is a play with the Hungarian word "szélfész", meaning a gale.
