PCP will become famous soon enough


That's clear that there was some disagreement between them and the builder.

They talk of design flaws but they say that its a nice design. They talk about incompetent building practices and plain stupid construction techniques but they don't say of what they are talking about. They say that they are going to post it on line, but I cannot find anything.

I had never heard anything bad about the builder or his boats and I don't understand how possibly CR could survive doing bad boats. Cr is a Swedish firm and their boats are probably more expensive than other Swedish high quality boats like Halberg Rassy, Malo and more expensive than other Nordic boats like Arcona. How can they survive building very expensive boats in a market where the high quality is the rule?

I am very curious and I would like to know more, but I don't think it's fair to make unsubstantiated claims without explaining of what they are talking about.

Regards

Paulo
