Hi - EU Chap Sunsesta Surf owner here (late 2017 model). After 220hrs the hull has small cracks all around the swim platform and a large crack internally (above the ballast) where the cockpit meets the hull. The first time it went back in the water this year the transom started leaking around the drive (no GRP inside of the mounting bolts - just paint - so it just gave way). When looking closely in and around the hull, the finish internally, grp work is really poor with air pockets and paint over unfinished work. Lots of other small issues such as a multitude of small bubbles/holes in the exterior gel coat which came out when the hull was polished, bolts needing to be replaced as they rusted out.
Is this type of build quality normal for a Chap or is this one a lemon? Hard to compare as we dont have a lot of them in Europe.
