I just wonder how a company like Hanse in such a competitive market can treat its customers with such distain and distrust. If the ceo of a company claims its product is flawless it seems to make a mockery of the concept of a warranty!
I must say, I do not understand some of the comments here. If I really ran the boat aground and damaged the rudder, why would I "rant" against Hanse? And if it was the bankrupt German dealer who damaged the rudder during delivery, am I wrong to assume that Hanse should bear responsibility, since I cannot collect from a company that no longer exists?
It's pretty simple. Hanse has a pretty good reputation - and has for a long time. You're a new poster slamming them, "quoting" the CEO as saying stuff that kind of stretches credulity.
I'm not saying you're making this stuff up - but until real evidence is produced, you're just another anonymous dude posting rants on the interwebs. Blah, blah, blah....
