To be clear...I am only aware of a very few boats out of many hundreds which have claimed issues.
So net net a couple of boats have had problems and some folks feel they need to pick a part a vendor.
Let's get real - every manufacture has issues.
Spec -- Look at the boat you like -- if it surveys OK and you are comfortable with where C&C/Tartan are at from a corporate standpoint make your own decision.. don't rely on the chat board web hype.. there is lots of that on this mfg on this particular board
I have no vested interest in any of the manufactures or brands or people.. just a tired observer of watching a vendor flamed for no real documented and provable issue that spans multiple boats..
