Ok, that Hot Rod comment hurt!
And to think that you're comparing a Lagoon to the HR's Plywood wonder - Wow!
Lagoon is pretty proud of their naval architects: Van Peteghem and Lauriot Pr
évost (VPLP). They're going to complain to the international commission of something or other I'm sure.
I just pulled the brochure on a Lagoon 38 - it has a CE A-8 rating (even with sliding glass doors).
