They're all big hunks of fiberglass, wiring, and vinyl in the end. Not Ferrari's, Abrams tanks, FY-22 Raptor Stealth fighters or any other form of high-tech machine.
I've never wavered from that opinion, and I don't think I ever will......I take that back. The Navy SEALS has a boat worth raving about and is well worth it's money....

My inquiry had absolutely nothing to do with the 43... Just for the record.
I also thought this thread was in reguards to the new 43 ,as the 32 is a nice boat, its not in the same league as the above mentioned boats.

But not blown away by their sheer strength or ability to withstand gale force hurricanes like some on the board would elaborately attest to in their "roughest waters in the country" locations where interpretation of 3-4's varies as much as boat opinions. Still can't grasp the price of these puppies sometimes....

and field exposure out on the lakes, rivers (where most of the big bad boats on here roam bullying the Regals and Bayliners, developing their bad-boy reputations) and more importantly where real offshore boats are tested, on the real "3-4-5-6 footers" i.e. saltwater.
Very well said. It amazes me the imaturity on this site sometimes

WHoaa WHoaaa There killer,, "plastic Piece of crap"? There is a frame associtated with the vette,, and if you have ever been t-boned in a vette,, or rear ended, you will eat your words on that last statement,, Im not saying whats better,,or comparing to a lambo, but "plastic piece of crap" Have some respect for an American Legend. Ive been in quite a few situations with my vette's the last one I was rear ended dead on by a drunk,, traveling in excess of 105mph, speedlimit was 35mph,, I was reall close to that. I walked away,, The frame on the vette is something special. AMERICA FuKK YEA!
