Default Why does Baja get such a bad wrap from some folks?

I'm sure this has been dicussed somewhere and if someone can point me to a thread I would be interested in reading peoples viewpoints. I ran across a Powerquest vs. Baja thread and a lot of bashing going towards the Baja name? Personally I think you get the most for your money with Baja. Don't mean to start an argument or or anything along those lines was just curious.

well most people i talk to think that Bajas are built very cheap and that they are the the KIA of the boating industry. I personally am not a fan because you see them everywere.

Baja's are a good bang for the buck....but they are cheaper than other brands for a reason. I like them fine but like the Ford mustang, there are just too many for my taste.....really the main reason I'll never consider one for myself.
BTW: Plenty of other boats that have similar build quality but with less of them they don't have the same "stigma".

And why do you see them everywhere ? Maybe
because they are one hell of a boat, and best
bang for the buck. Ive owned six of them, have
two at the presant time a 33 ol ,36 ol ,
Not to say that there arent better boats out there
but for the money it will be hard to find one.
