Re: Product Reviews

I had similar response and attitude from Eric over saloon and head hatch lenses and also opening port gaskets & fasteners. For two small lenses, 3/8" gasket & 6 2-1/2 socket head screws over $600. I located everything needed elsewhere for less than $200. They obviously don't know how their competitors produce a better product at a profit. But it's the attitude that less is better when boats cost more, production volume is lower, and the higher end buyer is expecting more. You would think tooling quality for castings would have improved, not gotten worse. A&H covered a huge market in their day, but it sounds like their days could be numbered.
