Tinkerboater...you have absolutely NO idea what the quality of an HTM was, is or will be in the future. For you to make such a statement is ridiculous. Please explain your credentials for making such a statement.
I will agree the company as a whole would most likely be in better shape under the leadership of Steve, but to make your statement is irresponsible. You evidently have absolutely no idea as to how boats are built. I can assure you that it is important to have good supervision from a quality oriented person, but you have no right to make such a statement without knowing factually who is and who is not supervising the people who build HTM powerboats.
Your analogy does not fit this scenario at all...while I'm certain Steve could actually handlay the FRP I doubt he does...he has people that he trusted to do this job correctly...people who more than likely do it better than he does.
I wonder who was watching the company the day that Steve and the others were out testing on the water...and the day before...God help the people whose boats were being built that day because Steve wasn't around to hawk over them...do they deserve refunds too? Come on people...if you don't know what the fu*# you're talking about don't post to a thread...stick with what you know.
tinkerer knows everything about everything, just ask him
