Re: Production boats- justified bias?
Maybe this is the difference:
Boat hit hard, No unusual leaks but 30k in damage,
Grid system repair
Maybe the boats survive a bad go but are pretty much totaled after the fact.
Now THIS is actually a great point DPM. It would be great to see damage data for production and traditional bluewater boats that have come through similar conditions.
It might well be the case that the lighter built production boats are damaged past the point of repair more quickly/easily than the trads. I could see that as a possibility.
Any studies out there?
