I'm not sure why you two feel you need to continue with the personal attacks and demands to close this thread, Maine Sail and k1vsk. After all, aren't these forums intended to share information and opinions on the topic of sailing?
Let's try to focus this debate on the crux of the issue. We seem to have two differing opinions here. In one corner, we have me. I believe Hunter Marine Corp. knowingly has been manufacturing a defective ACP hull for many years. In the other corner, we have Maine Sail, sailingdog, K1vsk (and probably others) who currently believe that I have neglected my sailboat and am trying to get Hunter to pay for the damages. And, to discredit me, you have challenged me to substantiate one of my main support points - that there are "dozens and dozens" of other Hunter ACP owners who have experienced the same problem that I have. Of course, evidence that shows I am not the only one who has experienced this 'cracking problem', helps to substantiate my claim and weakens your POV.
While I believe I have a strong legal argument to win a claim against Hunter Marine Corp., I have no intention of trying to outspend them, or their parent, Luhrs Marine Group in the courts. In my opinion, that would simply be "throwing good money after bad money", as my Dad often warned me about. That is why I told Hunter's representatives that I would take this case to "the court of public opinion".
All I ask is that readers of this forum listen to my facts and let me respond to your challenges. If, in doing so, they agree with you guys and/or gals, I will just be happy knowing that I have a chance to express my views. Since you feel so passionately and strongly about your views and your case, you shouldn't feel threatened about what I have to say. In fact, you should encourage more dialogue NOT less!
