Have to disagree aasault. Manufacturer had nothing to do with it. If an unqualified person gets into an 18 wheeler and kills anyone on the road, drunk or not, it''s the inexperience. You don''t have unqualified pilots flying planes. And you don''t loan your boat to someone that is unqualified. What about the boat owner? How can one loan out their boat to someone unqualified. There seems to be a lot of blame to go around, but the manufacturer, no.
