With the devastation that HTM has suffered, and a widow that has not even had time to grieve, yet trying to hold together a company that her late husband built for them, I am embarrassed even posting to this. There are alot of happy HTM customers out there with alot of horsepower not breaking their boats. The boat that broke was a prototype. That's why testing is done. To make sure the customer gets a safe boat. It is sad what happened, but not a reason to back out of a deal. Based on the facts stated here, I believe the guy should lose his deposit as a fee for his stupidity in not doing some homework and from the sounds of it, racist too.
YOUR IGNORANCE HAS JUST COST YOU QUARTER FOR THE JUKE BOX.
