Re: New production boat interior finishing and repair prior to comissioning
Once they get your money they will want to keep as much as possible. Anything that you don't like have fixed before check is written.
As far as a Flame war I think your making to much of that. IT boils down to use.
A certain subset "cruisers mostly" use there boats in such a way as to turn Benihuntalina's into a pile of trash in short order. Others will gunhole there area every summer for 40 years quite happily with them. Hull thickness and construction techniques as well as hull to deck joints and chain plate attachment etc show up pretty fast with blue water passages. Yacht shipment via shipping company's is very popular with Benihuntalina owners...and with good reason.
