Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

In the 80's I think Hunter was first transitioning from "small cheap boats built to a price" to larger stronger boats.

They got a lot of people on the water with affordable boats, and affordable often means corners have to be cut, one way or another. But on a larger boat, if what you need is there and in good working order...

What the hell, Beneteau also cut corners. They saved thousands by using IRON KEELS instead of proper lead ones, but you don't hear a lot of people complaining about the whole boat anymore, do you?

I'm still saving up for a proper tungsten keel sabot, so please, save all your old tungsten light bulb filaments up and mail them in to me?
