Correct me if I'm wrong..(oh boy, here we go) LOL!
BUT, as far as I recollect, there are only 2 manufacturers on this board that would race F-2, Pat at AT and Dave at Sunsation. I don't think either has huge experience in it, maybe not enough to tell the highs and lows. Otherwise, "form" a "manufacture's" point of view, nobody else can help you. We don't make boats.
From my idiot chair, I can see that Cig and Fountain and Formula race and everyone knows who they are. aka "successful" Marketing, but not necessarily feasibile marketing.
Did I miss any manufacturers that are present on the board? Sorry if I did, my brain is working slow this week.....yeah yeah, just this week, that's it.
