General Comments by vendor
Water Jester has just (2013) had a top-side repaint at Pinders' Boat Yard in Worcester and now looks like a new boat. Other modifications have been made to ensure ease of use and the bottom has been re-blacked. The interior is also being refitted as time allows during the off-season. The boat is very comfortable to be on in both warm and cold weather and is very easy to handle, steering a nice straight line down the cut

Water Jester is owned and run by the 8 shareholders; all monies go to the welfare of Water Jester with no management company taking a cut.

Experience of use shows that in practice weeks are fixed at the owners AGM before the cruising season starts in March; but owners plans change and can be re-negotiated with other owners.
