zmfmd...thanks for the re-statement. Would hate to see boats get like seatbelts...we have enough regulations already. In answer to your question...no I would not pay a 20% premium for unsinkability or self bailing. My boat is already self righting. I have manual and electric bilge bumps and insurance a liferaft and EPIRB in the most unlikely circumstance that she would sink. Those features are more appealing to the small boat and day sailer market where they are quite commonly found.
