I wouldn't worry Damien, since moving to wales i don't sail in any of the local ponds, not from a weed problem but from a yokle problem!
To be honest i only miss it when i've just finished a project to give it a maiden voyage, but once i'm on to the next i forget about it.
In some respects its nice not to do the maintenance from sailing. leaving me with a much nicer collection of boats.
