somebody had bought one and were re-selling it. One of the reasons
given was that every time he wanted to enjoy a coffee on deck - or
get a re-fill he had to climb down and back up the ladder. Things
like that. He was however quick to point out it's many advantages as
well. Just wasn't his cup of tea (or coffee) as he hadn't considered
these things before he bought it.
