Bob, was it a Reliance 37? If it was, this one's my fault. Brent also said you'd designed an aluminum boat here:

That was what I was thinking about in terms of the fairy boat Brent made up - I just thought the Reliance 37 was yet another as I'd listed.

So, I'll go back and correct that one entry in the BSYMP thread - clarifying that he's lying about the owner's comments - not the boat.

I have no problem making such corrections. It's important that it's accurate.
