Come on, Denr, tell us what you really think!

So, basically you're saying that all those happy IP owners are completely deluded, and they're going to be sorry, sorry, sorry when the engine conks out in the crowded marina. They may be happy for years, the foolish victims, until the embarrassing tragedy strikes and they drift out of control with sails up and nothing happening. Woe, woe, woe.

Honestly, I'm not even interested in owning an IP, but I don't think FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) is any way to win an argument. In fact, I'm not even certain where the argument is in this matter.

And your supporting evidence of having your motor fail twice in a harbor or anchorage in as many years is an example of what? Impending embarrassment of IP owners, or the need to improve the maintence of your engine?
