I heard a few days back that P&B had a keen interest to see the decks on the 2012 Mk X go smooth. It seems that P&B prefer it….. as it improves repairability….
I know my bowman is not going to be keen (!!). Perhaps we can get just the centre panel with a textured surface. However, when you stop and think about sailing years ago – we all clambered round smoothly varnished decks without trouble – so perhaps we are being over-sensitive about it !!
