Re: Beneteau Keel bolts
If a boat is designed and built to be "crash resistant", it will of necessity be built more heavily (slow) and more expensive than the competition. And there goes the mass market, down the drain.
If this boat costs 1% more than that boat and more 1% slower as well? Folks are gonna buy the cheaper faster boat. "But this is more rugged!" only interests a small niche of the market. I don't think that tail can wag that dog.
"Honest, honey, I don't know how I got that tatoo!"
Ahuh, and that rock was never seen, reported, or charted before. What boat buyer is going to concede that *they* are not able to avoid rocks?
