A good safe boat ?

What a nightmare for the people aboard. Was this the collision in the South River, a few weeks ago? Seems that most boaters on the Bay have the idea that there is only one rule of the road: the larger boat has the right of way.

At any rate. Jeff, when I mentioned the thickness of the glass (by eye, not measuring device with me), it was the hullsides not the topsides. Is there a greater difference between this boat and older boats in hull thickness?

Steve, I heard somewhere that boats under 26ft, built after a certain date, have to have positive flotation. Is that for just for powerboats?

Thanks for the info on the boat.

regards,
John
