yea . . great topic BK . . .an i dont think really this will start a war. heck its been 4 pages on this so far an we all seem to be in agreement for the most part, splashing is wrong.another thing Caincando1 right now the industry is still kinda in the grey area as some manufacturers have been producing a splashed boat for many years, sence like the 70's and 80's, when the laws were very different. again the 24 excaliber is a great example of that.it is still being produced by several different manufacturers, although i dont know if they are splashed or legal copies . it may be some time before the new laws show there full effetion . i guess the best advice is to stick with companys that have a long standing reputation for quality and design.
i was also approached once to pull some molds from an aftermarket engine cover for merc 2.5 outboards (think it was a lightning or something) i declined that project also. i just dont have it in me to splash someone else's work.i know what it takes to produce somthing like that.
