You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.
What is the point of the question? Does he want to know how to break his gayliner? That's easy, just put it in water.
Oh that wasn't very fair was it.
Call Jeff at Freeze Frame and get a video with lots of carnage. Key West 1995 comes to mind.
It would all depend on the length. For a 20ft boat it shouldn't happen unless you hit the shore For say a 33 ft boat like a Donzi Crossbow it would be at the windshield where the lazy ass builders end butted the stringers and notched them out huge for the cockpit sole and never reinforced the butt end. All this near the middle of the boat. Do I sound bitter? Or just experienced
This website is for "OFFSHORE ONLY" Bayliner, means in the bay
Modern boats delaminate due to coring problems and builders trying to build them too light. Many times a glass guy's gun malfunctions and he's not getting the mek in the resin. I know I had a guy build me a POS. I would suggest really checking the bottom out on a prospective purchase. Soft spots mean BIG TROUBLE - BH
I heard that baylitters break quicker the smaller they are.
Even some of the best boat builders run into delamination. Not necessarily their fault, cause when you're running over 100mph and all of sudden mother nature throws you a speed bump... anything can break. And they don't always break on the bottom!
I think their canopies paid for themselves here:
To the best of my knowledge, no one was hurt...
