Default 7 years bad luck?

Just wondering does anyone have a 27 or 29 Fever with a cracked mirror over the bar? It seems that every picture that I have seen the mirror has the same crack as my 29 does. Do you think this was caused from pounding the sh#*t out of it or possibly overpowering the vessel or just factory flaw? (please inquire)

No isues on my 32, nor did my 27 when I owned it.
But then I rarely go faster than 45 mph

We have had 2 27's and 3 29 Fevers' and never had any broken or cracked mirrors. One of the 27's and one of the 29's had crazing on the smoked windshield side panels, but thats it.

No crack here. Run mostly on lake though. Maybe 2-3 trips a year to coast. Never had boat in ocean only intercostal.

If your cracking the mirror from pounding...The vee birth is for pounding, the bar is for making drinks.. Your girlfriend and her migraine will thank me for giving you this sage advice...carry on..
