General Comments

A much loved and well cared for Cornish Crabber.  Andante spent the first 4 years of her life under cover in a shed and was then only lightly used by her previous owner.  A pretty, seaworthy boat, compact and comfortable. Well maintained by her current owners and in excellent condition. Last survey 2012.
