FWIW, I read WDSchock's comments as advertising perhaps, but not "bashing," which should mean "unwarranted criticism," but has apparently come to mean "any negative comment, even if accurate." He said Morris build quality is comparable to other custom boats; is this inaccurate? He said the M36 is sluggish in the water; it's a heavy day-sailer, can it possibly be lively? Personally, I believe choosing a boat would be easier with more candor in the fora.

I'm always put off by any manufacture speaking negatively about another, even if gently so, maybe even if it's warranted. That's for the sales pitch at the office, not from an industry pro here amongst the hoi polloi, and especially if they really aren't even competing for the same buyer/demographic.

You might be surprised by the demographic of the buyer of our Harbor line of boats. They could buy any boat, any size, at any price.

They are very sophisticated boat buyers who know boats and know them well. They are not impressed by slick marketing or clever brand positioning. The vast majority pay cash, less than 2% finance their purchase.

Our buyers enjoy that we do not have brand labels all over the boat. The sail cover doesn't have a logo. Our buyers do not need to loudly proclaim they have arrived.
