This is a great topic. I know this will start a war...but. For some of us green horns it would be nice to know who some of these manufacturerers are. I know naming names will just start a fight. So maybe names should be left out. What everyone elses opinions on naming some well know spashers?

yea . . great topic BK . . .an i dont think really this will start a war. heck its been 4 pages on this so far an we all seem to be in agreement for the most part, splashing is wrong.another thing Caincando1 right now the industry is still kinda in the grey area as some manufacturers have been producing a splashed boat for many years, sence like the 70's and 80's, when the laws were very different. again the 24 excaliber is a great example of that.it is still being produced by several different manufacturers, although i dont know if they are splashed or legal copies . it may be some time before the new laws show there full effetion . i guess the best advice is to stick with companys that have a long standing reputation for quality and design.

i was also approached once to pull some molds from an aftermarket engine cover for merc 2.5 outboards (think it was a lightning or something) i declined that project also. i just dont have it in me to splash someone else's work.i know what it takes to produce somthing like that.

I certainly won't name the company's names, but some of these individuals/companies are actually admitting what they've done, that they have/have made molds of splashed hulls, and oddly, two companies are claiming to be very proud of splashing and say they will continue because they can't get punished. And even a few people giving them praises. I couldn't believe it and that's why I came here -- to see what you guys, the Offshore segment, thought about this.

Several of those threads have already been deleted because you can imagine the anger this creates.

But you can still see one of these threads at:

http://forums.screamandfly.com/showt...threadid=10333

It is titled: "I will sell these molds.. yes the one that build a STV-like boat"

When you visit, you'll see the names of two other boat building companies joined this thread to encourage buying splashed boats. It is found on the registered General forums on Screamandfly.com

That's cause it's all done with a chopper gun!

hehe, j/k Reg and crew build a good boat.

BTW, this thread is 4 pages long and no one has either taken a swipe at the beak boats or turned it into a flame war. Thought I was at a different website for while, like OSO about 6 months ago...

I understand that a large Canadian Boat Company's peformance hull originated from a splashed Velocity hull.
