I had occasion to see a couple of used ones in Ft. Lauderdale a few years ago. I think they held up remarkably well. Of course, how could a long skinny non cored boat like that not flex a little? Ripping the chainplates right out of the deck? This is the first I have heard about that. Any pictures?
My biggest concern is the extremely unprotected cockpit. Otherwise, the boat seems like quite the value.
